'Sewing Seeds' Graduates Third Class of Students

Sewing Seeds
October 15, 2016

Volcanes Sewing School had their 3rd Generation graduating with honors. Sixteen out of 24 students graduated.

We had a delicious luncheon prepared by all the students, and a beautiful cake to celebrate their accomplishment.

One of the students is a professional singer and delighted us with a rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and the traditional Mexican graduation song "Las Golondrinas." She also sang "Ceilito Lindo." I guess she did it for the only gringo in the ceremony - Art Fumerton.

They were all very proud of themselves and thankful to their teachers Patricia Mora the Head Master, Alejandra Amigon, Patty's T.A. and Maria de Jesus Lopez, the cutting and pattern making teacher.

Bertha Medna, head of production, was present to invite the new graduates to join the sewing workshop.

Out of the sixteen graduates, eight decided to stay in the workshop and join the team.

The purpose of our program is to empower women by giving them a skill to provide supplemental income to their families so their children can continue with higher education once they graduate from Junior High School and / or to give them a position in the sewing workshop where they can earn a steady income to sustain their families.

Volcanes Sewing School and Volcanes Sewing Workshop are equal opportunity employers, we are inclusive to gender and age equality and welcome anyone who wants to learn how to sew and work in our workshop.

Thank you Sewing Seeds International for your continued support and professional advice.

Our fourth class started on September 12, 2016 and will last for four months.
