More information on the Kitale Tailoring School



Here are some pictures from the Kitale Sewing School...This is where your money is going when you buy a wool bird from me.  90% of the profits from the birds are going to purchase sewing machines for the graduates of this school.  Each sewing machine costs 150.00 and I am proud to say that I have raised 561.00!
