My Dear Friends,

My project with the Kibera Slum Women's Resource Center in Kenya has taken off and grown into an unbelievably outstanding initiative. It has evolved from initially sourcing the production to my designs with the center (providing a source of income for the women over the summer season) into an in-person collaboration - from New York to Kenya - incorporating a series of developmental workshops spearheaded by me.

Your generous contributions have allowed for the funding of:

- A complete set of professional patternmaking tools purchased at NY's Steinlauf & Stohler (Photo 2)
- An assortment of sewing supplies & materials (Photo 2)
-Cleaning & office necessities
- 1 Sewing Machine Repair (Photo 4)

My workshops have grown into a remarkably fruitful success involving not just the immediate members of the women's center but also various garment production managers among the community as well. Together we have covered lessons in empowerment, creative expression, organizational skills,  art, design, patternmaking, and, sewing techniques. Kindly refer to the photos to see all of their hard work and dedication. Everyday, we are moving one step forward!!!

My objective is to continue training these women to help them further develop their skills and to make fundamental improvements to their work environment creating a fully efficient and well- equipped workspace. To achieve this, I humbly request your ongoing support.

My goal is to raise $1200 within the next few weeks during my remaining time in Kenya. Donors will be entered for the chance to receive a STAY by MAR "Nomad Sack"- a travel pouch made out of a beautiful Kenyan batik produced in Kibera by the women's group.

The funds will be directed toward:

-Supplies that are currently lacking in the workroom: irons + ironing boards, lamps for each work station, extension cords & organizational compartments
-Basic garment production necessities for each of the women (so that they no longer have to share which delays the flow of work)- fabric & paper scissors, extra bobbins, tool cases
-Servicing all 7 of the sewing machines allowing each to operate flawlessly
-1 Years supply of cleaning & administrative supplies
-Drinking Water Filter - an invaluable utility as their is no constant running water in the facility and water is usually collected in bins

Despite their living conditions in the slums, these women are unbelievably hard-working and warmhearted individuals committed to bettering themselves to improve their quality of life and to provide for their families. I want to help them move closer toward their dreams of sustaining their garment production facility in every possible way by providing the necessary tools they need to advance. Please help in making this wish come true!

I would have been able to accomplish all that I have so far without the ongoing  support and generosity from each one of you.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Truly yours,
Marianne
