Orphan Outreach donate funds for school uniforms and sweaters

In August 2019 Orphan Outreach provided vital funds for much needed school uniforms and sweaters. 

 

The school uniforms will be made by the Patmos Women's Tailoring Group and the sweaters are knitted by a local woman in Mathare.  In total 59 children will receive a warm school sweater, 10 girls will receive a new school dress and 17 boys will receive a new shirt. 

The Patmos Women's Tailoring Group is an income generating initiative which was set up in 2014 to help some of the mothers/guardians of children at the school earn a living.  As well as making school uniforms the women have over the years diversified and now make other items such as nappies, baby carriers and bags.   

In September the new uniforms and sweaters were distributed to the children.
