July 2022 - Videoconference with Bindy & Martha

Monday, July 18 we were able to present 5 sewing machines to a group of women from the slum area in Vijayawada after finishing their class. Bindu was able to invite Martha & Conny via video conference. It was the first class for Hemima in this ragpicker colony area. We will monitor this project for future classes. Four of the women are married and have two children, who are able to attend government schools. Hemima's sister Mary Jones, is a social worker who cares for children in this area. She had told us that some of the women were interested in the sewing classes. This is a good opportunity to improve their livelyhoods and standard of living. These sewing machines were used and since these women were not able to pay for them entirely, they contributed what they were able to afford and Shoshana covered the remainder. THANK YOU to everyone who supports our projects!

We thank her for her dedication and hard work during her many years of service with Shoshana.  We elected Gertraud Zeisberger as the new President and wish her God's blessing in her new position.

June 2016 - Graduation Time!

After Bindu spent most of the May month with our annual audit, now we are celebrating GRADUATION time! ​After finishing a training program, Shoshana instructors make sure that needy students receive a sewing machine on a small loan. The instructors also make follow- up visits to see that the students have become independent and make use of their new education and are able to use it to improve their better living situation.
