In many places in the world, to be a widow is a devastating economic situation. For some women in Nairobi, Kenya, it is becoming less so. Hope Beyond Circumstance works with a group of women on sewing projects, with an eye toward expanding their work. “We are dedicated to helping widows and orphans find healing, self-sufficiency, dignity, and hope for the future.” The group’s first sewing effort is small jewelry bags that SEED is purchasing and giving away with any jewelry purchase. As the women have improved their sewing skill, they now sew the beautifully patterned girls’ skirts and kitenge wallets.
