Industrial Sewing Machine for Workshops

Many of the young women we are serving in Peru have a strong desire to learn to sew and sell what they make. We are providing classes for as many as we can, and now we just need more machines and supplies. Provide this sustainable gift for a young woman learning to become financially independent.

$350 for one industrial machine for starting a business, and supplies

How Your Gifts Are Used


75.4%  Program Services for Children

12.4%  Management and General

12.2%  Fundraising and Promotion

Some organizations use their catalog items as “representative” gifts and the funds are pooled and spent more generally. But when you choose gifts through the Kids Alive Gift Catalog, your actual gift choices are allocated to the appropriate countries to meet specific needs identified in the catalog.

In the unlikely event that a gift you’ve designated is over-funded (or can no longer be carried out), your gift will be applied by Kids Alive International where needed most.

Gifts may not be designated for a particular child or site (unless that site is specifically mentioned in the gift description).
