East Timor, November 17th-30th, 2019
We are planning a sewing training program in Dili, the capital of East Timor in late November.
We will be teaching ladies selected from these areas and NGO leaders:
Oecusse : organised by Judy Charnaud -Rotary E-Club of Greater Sydney )
Soibada : organised by Tamara Sloper-Harding -Rotary Club of Northern Beaches ,Sydney
Dili: organised by Libby Bleakley – Rotary Club of BlackHeath, NSW
Vinqueque: organised by Mira Fonseca of Dili.
Hera : organised by Mira Fonseca of Dili
The project will also by in conjunction with the Rotary club of Dili
The students will be taught in 5 different classes , Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Craft. For a better understanding of our program, please check our website for the photos and report from our most recent program on Solomon Islands
The cost will be capped at $2,500. Airfares and accommodation are expensive for East Timor and Sewaid with cover all cost exceeding $2,500 per teacher. All the sewing machines, fabrics and accessories will be shipped to East Timor by Sewaid to arrive there in October.
This program will not only be of great benefit to the students ( who will all come form very poor arears) but as always I am sure it will be very satisfying, lots of fun and an experience of a lifetime.
Kiribati March 2020
Following a survey visit I made in April to Kirabati , we have promised to run a Sewaid training course in or around March next year. The exact dates are not set as yet, but should be confirmed shortly.
Kiribati is a small set of islands 3 hours by plane from Fiji. It is a very poor nation of 110,000 people, but they are also some of the most friendly and delightful people to work with.
The program will be supervised by the South Tarawa Rotary Corps , in conjunction with several other church and government groups. It will be over 2 weeks with the middle Saturday and Sunday spent a resort. Unfortunately airfares to Kirabati are very expensive, and so the cost is capped at $2,500 and Sewaid will pay everything exceeding that cost.
Our teaching program will again be much the same as Solomon Islands and our other recent programs. Sewaid will ship all the machines, fabrics and accessories over to Kirabati beforehand.
And again, this program will not only be of great benefit to the students ( who will all come from very poor homes) but as always I am sure it will be very satisfying, lots of fun and an experience of a lifetime.
