Community Outreach SEWING Clinics
Our Mission: Our mission at HAU Gear International (HG) is to encourage through belief, equip through education, and empower through training & support people living in remote villages throughout the world affected by environmental and economic devastation.
Our team in Nepal is seeking to establish sewing clinics, located in the Ruby Valley Region of Nepal, to help promote the following goals:
Share the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
Train local women to sew trekking and daily gear for their village.
Create a relationship and partnership of trust with local villages to help promote eco-trekking.
Provide encouragement and education to the children of these villages by providing them with resources sewed during the community outreach clinics.
Our Why: At HAU Gear we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to become a difference maker in the life of a woman, child, and village. We are working alongside local leaders in the remote villages of Nepal to help empower them to create and organize self-mobilized activities that can be repeated and duplicated from community to community. We do this through Community Outreach Sewing Clinics.
Here are a few steps our local Nepali leadership team will taking in setting up a community outreach clinic:
Identify a Host Village (a village that will allow them to host the clinic).
Partner with a local pastor and/or church in the area to share in their “why”.
Invite women (that can represent their village) to attend the sewing clinic.
Determine what they will train the women to sew during the clinic (like stuff sacks, daypacks, etc…).
Establish a budget of what the cost will be to administer the clinic.
Work with those villages to create a partnership of trust and future opportunity.
The Approach: During each clinic the leadership team will teach the women to sew items that can be taken back to their village for the benefit of the children within their community.
For example this last Christmas the students sewed 450 stuff sacks that where then filled with educational gifts and handed out amongst the children in six villages throughout the region. Upon completion of the clinic each student was provided with an certificate of completion along with a small financial gift for attending the clinic.The HAU Gear team then assisted the students to transport back to their village the gifts for the children.
Upon completion of each clinic HAU Gear has also partnered with a local pastor or lay leader to follow-up with the women of those villages to see how they are doing, to provide ongoing encouragement, and to help enroll new students for the next clinic.
