Why a $20 uniform from a village sewing center? A uniform makes a way for a child to go to school, brings dignity and pride in a job where there are none, and provides sustainable funds for orphan care. I'm Paul Danley from Colorado and have had the joy and privilege to travel to Haiti with the Global Orphan Project. Am so excited about our team raising funds for the GO Project sewing centers in Uganda and Haiti! This project just makes so much sense. Please take 90 seconds to view the video on the left.
Truly a stunning marker in my life has been traveling to Haiti with the GO Project. Witnessing the level of care for the children firsthand, and spending time with the children have made the impression of a lifetime. I've been so fortunate to make friendships with the older teens, playing music together, getting schooled severely in soccer, and just hanging out. On my last trip you should have seen the beaming face of one of the boys, as he told me he had to leave for a while. He said "I'm going to sewing class but I'll be back!"
This sewing center project, now a for real going concern is bringing hope and dignity. We are all working on a lofty goal: 15,000 uniform orders by the end of the year. All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Helping us get the word out will make all the difference. Won't you join us?
