A dream comes true!!
We finished the year 2015 with our first fashion show. We prepared the catwalk, the devotional time, music and a little snack. A lot of improvisation but it worked!! We were so impressed.!!
This event was such a success that we will do it every year. We will invite relatives and friends and would like to invite the pupils from the national schools as well.We uploaded some videos on our facebook page: Enjoy!!! https://www.facebook.com/Sewing-project-Paraguay-1471027909840312/
Every woman showed some of her creations. Afterwards they received their diploma. Some have worked really hard -but the most important thing: they endured. What a creativ potential lies within them. We are excited and proud of them!!
All schools had an exposition. The Photo below shows the Colegio San Enrique, in which we a very moving mini -fashion show. Have a look at our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Sewing-project-Paraguay-1471027909840312/
We chose the song "Speak Life" (from Toby Mac)
the television came and showed what the students in the Colegio Palmar did learn.
The Aché Indios
We were invited to participate in the festivities of the 39th founding party of the Ache tribe in Puerto Barra. We have never dreamed to teach Indios. Thank you God!
We heard one phrase several times: God forgives you every sin, but the time is merciless! the leaders wanted to express that they have to press forward or they will have to face the same fate as so many other tribes in Paraguay - as begglars besides the roads and parks.
The seamstresses and leaders of the Aché in Puerto Barra.
And we are glad that our input moves other persons and organisations: the wive of the district governor of Alto Parana donated a new overlock machine.
A big thank you to our supporters: The company Stratic donated suitcases, the company gütermann donated fabrics. A lot of families gave us their used sewing machine. Our friends in the blackforest town of Ebersweier were amazing. Our friend Christa Kaltenbrunn organized fundraiser parties. .Our friend Georg Scheifler did repair the sewing machines. The Nähzentrum Regner in Weißenburg/Bavaria is collecting since the beginning. Thank you so much!!Gracias!
