There is a growing narrative representing children in rural communities as children who do not have clothes and cannot afford to get nice clothes. They are often pictured shirtless or wearing tattered clothes and used as samples to define poverty. This is a narrative that is mostly not true but has come to stay. We can change this if beautiful, yet simple clothes are made available and affordable to the parents of the children.
We are working on this through our “Fabric waste to children clothes” project. Donate your fabric waste, jeans, shirts, shorts, etc. that you are no longer using, and let us transform it into amazing clothes for children. We are then going to make good-looking, yet simple wear available at affordable prices to the parents of the children within the communities we serve and across.
Instead of sending those useful materials to landfills, let us make children’s clothes from it and change the growing narrative within rural communities.
