Love ripples throughout this beautiful planet called earth. We have been throwing little stones, that have caused some ripples into some of the huge social problems facing women in South East Asia.
For over 10 years. To date we have raised over $70,000 simply through the making and selling of scarves. Our heart is filled with gratitude for everyone who has bought one of our little scarves or wraps.
The Sew and Sow Program is in local communities through Skills Centres. These skills centres provide six month Tailoring courses (three mornings per week) where poor women are taught to make traditional Indian clothes and soft toys as well as embroidery. At the end of the course, each woman is presented with a treadle or hand operated sewing machine (locally made) at a graduation service.

Providing skills and empowering a woman in this way allows her to start her own business, provide for her family and ensures that her children are able to go to school and get a proper education.
The poverty cycle is broken through the gift of a $125 sewing machine!
One of the greatest joys I have experienced is watching the girls receive their sewing machines. The look that comes on a person’s face when they know they have the skills and the equipment to forge their own pathway out of poverty is amazing.
Our little stone that we throw into the water to create a ripple is our shawls and wraps. It is what we have in our hands. It all started with one lady facing retirement and wondering what on earth would she now do with her time. Passionate about women and issues relating to women her heart was moved by the plight of women in other countries. So she learned how to knit and she now makes scarves and wraps to empower women so that they can make a difference in their own life.
