Education is not only limited to the children. At FundaMaya we believe that one of the keys to assisting the community as a whole is to provide opportunities for individual women to learn and use skills to gain greater economic independence for their families. We put this belief into action with income-generating opportunities such as providing comprehensive sewing classes, with the desire to give sewing machines to community members who complete the sewing program.
Please consider supporting a student in our sewing program and/or donating sewing machines or supplies.
$25 a month ~ $33 Canadian (or $75/session ~ $100 Canadian) will sponsor a woman in sewing class (not including materials).
There is a basic class session and an advanced class session. Each session lasts 3 months.
We currently partner with Global Legacy Programs who helps us to provide sewing machines to the women upon completion of class.
