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.
The cost for the beginner's sewing class is $200 US and can do it at $33.33 US monthly for 6 months. This includes one woman successfully completing the course and receiving all the materials she needs.
Fundamaya offers an advanced sewing class that cost $220 US and you can do the monthly payments for 10 months at $22 US, this also includes all the materials needed.
The sewing machines have a cost of $380 US, these machines are given at the end of the beginner's sewing class.
We currently partner with Global Legacy Programs which helps us to provide sewing machines to the women upon completion of class.
