Earlier this year, The Village Angels of Tanzania hired Sr. Maria Magdalena Alphonse, affectionately called Sr. Bibi (Sr. Grandma) by all. Sister is a well-seasoned FSSB seamstress and she was given the task of teaching our youths how to sew.  All of our 16 youths learned on our six sewing machines. They have been practicing and soon will be given their final test.  Based on yesterday’s “wine-bottle-bag” experiment they are ready and sure to do fine.  Going forward the youths will sew pants for our elderly men and will prepare shirts, blouses and skirts for sale at local markets.  Signs of good return on investment from our training are starting to pop up! Two of the youth are shown below working on their sewing skills
