A donation of four new sewing machines was made last week to the non-profit organization Est/Her (Establishing Her for More) in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The donations was made by the Minister of Youth, Sports and E-Governance Kevin Bernard, along with the department of youth services to Chelsea Muñoz, Executive Director of Est/Her. Est/Her is an artisan program under the SHINE organization (Shaping Healthy Identities through Nurturing and Empowerment).
“The sewing machines are a high blessing to our ministry as we offer free sewing classes to local women all year long,” commented Chelsea. “We've taught over a 100 women how to sew and helped them financially. Donations also go towards scholarships for youths that really need the assistance. We desire to help women with resources for other career choices through other business skill-training and partnering with local businesses for internships and job openings. Est/Her meetings build a community of fellowship and provide women with self-confidence to create a sustainable future.”Click here to read the rest of the article in the Ambergris Today
