The LifeStitches Maracha Workshop

LifeStitches Uganda expanded their sewing workshop model to the small town of Maracha in the West Nile region approximately 40 miles from Arua. The project opened in November 2012 on St. Joseph’s Hospital grounds next to the HIV/AIDS PMTCT clinic.

The workshop operates eight pedal sewing machines and employs two tailor-instructors. The mothers make some products for the commercial market, teach sewing to local residents and will participate in a learning program for making school uniforms.
