Lack of knowledge keeps many in developing countries locked in poverty. Sewing workshops can provide a life-changing opportunity and a means to care for one’s family.

A basic sewing workshop will provide a foundation for the participant to build upon. The amount of material you can cover during your workshop will depend upon the length of time of your trip.

In addition to learning a new skill, ideas will be shared on how to market the items made.The long-term goal of this workshop is to help students learn how sewing can be turned into a self-sustaining “cottage industry.”

LEAMIS will help you with your workshop agenda, sewing ideas, and marketing possibilities.

While you are in Kenya, you may want to extend your trip a couple of days and take advantage of their many safari opportunities.

Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.

Transformation addresses the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.

Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
