Stitching a Better Future in Juarez
Maria Gonzalez sent Del Norte a note of gratitude for their continued support of the Stitching a Better Future project. This project an adult education program that teaches women to sew uniforms which in turn they can sell to earn a salary and provide a better life for themselves and their families.
This past weekend our ladies finished their second level of the Stitching a Better Future, and presented their works in the exposition that the University makes every semester to show to the community all the works done by the continuing education program students. It was very pleasant to hear from Gloria Yañez one of our students, that she already is doing some money by making dresses in her house.
Attached please find photos of some of the students showing their completion certificate.
Again, thank you, thank you very much for all the support.
