Sewing Machines Rescue Women from Poverty
“The slums of Mumbai alone—just the slums, not even the city—have somewhere around 14 million people and that's like over one and a half New York Citys.”
—Nathan, a behind-the-scenes missionary at Gospel for Asia
Providing men and women who live in the slums with sewing machines is one thing GFA-supported workers are doing to enable people to break out of the poverty they are trapped in.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple tool, given with a lot of love, to change a person’s life. Sewing machines provide consistent, dignified work that enables parents to provide for their families. Sewing machines bring hope for a better life and a way out of poverty.

Vocational Training Equips Women with
GFA-supported workers organize vocational training, including tailoring classes, that makes it possible to learn a new trade and succeed. Through a six-month tailoring course, women learn how to sew blouses, trousers, undergarments and many other practical items they can sell to provide a healthy income for their families.
After completing tailoring classes, many graduates receive sewing machines,— which is only made possible through the generosity of people like you!
