Sewing in El Salvador

It happened by chance…I was at a meeting discussing the newly arrived Bhutanese population in Madison over a year ago and one woman present at the meeting approached me afterwards…
“I’m heading to El Salvador with a Habitat for Humanity group in just a few days and I know the community there supports a sewing cooperative…do you think I could hand carry a machine along for them?” After learning more about the group we scurried through paperwork and prepared a machine for her to take along.
Again, this year, the group took a machine along. Although our participation is limited at this time we are excited at the prospect of working with the Getsemeni community in the future.
