Help us teach people how to sew


In 2017, we would like to teach a new life skill to the people of Sierra leone: sewing.

Training men and women to be seamsters and seamstresses will enable them to be not only provide for themselves, but also earn an income for their families.

Each sewing machine costs around $150, and we'd like to start with ten of them. 

If you would like to help us empower the natives, please consider making a gift.

*Checks can be made out to "Lifegate" and mailed to: Lifegate In Africa, PO Box 126, Athens, IL 62613. Please be sure to write "Sewing Machines" on the memo line. Thank you!
