We are always on the lookout for new sponsors. If you would like to help please Contact Us. Our greatest need is for fabrics and money. The money is needed for freight and to partially assist the volunteer teachers. Often we have to also pay for a hall or suitable building to run the teaching program in.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for their support to date.
Panalpina – Intercontinental sea and air freight
A huge thank you to Panalpina Australia for their donation of a 40′ container to go to Uganda for Sewaid and School For Life.
A massive amount of much needed equipment will be sent in this container which will leave Sydney around December 15th ’17 and will arrive in Uganda approximately 2 months later! See more details in the News section of our Website.
PK Fabrics 2013 – distributor of Moda Fabrics
We would like to thank the Managing Director of PK Fabrics, Mr Patrick Keough for his generous donation of two industrial sewing machines. One of these was sent to Uganda and the second will be sent to the Philippines.

HTL Limited, the Hong Kong and China division of our Sewgroup, has offered to donate 1% of their annual profit to SewAID. This is going to give a big financial boost to our operations and help us do projects which we have had on hold for some time. And to achieve some bigger projects, hopefully we will also be able to match this with grants from the Rotary Foundation.
