|Graduates with the sewing machines|
On December 5th these 9 Bernette sewing machines were given to the graduated women. There were two different groups that graduated last September and they were impatient waiting for these to come, as they wanted to continue practicing their new skills learned with Don Alberto, our sewing instructor.

This group of women from Solola has been participating in the classes since the end of May, and has finally completed the six month course. They can now manage to use the sewing machine, and make their own blouses, skirts, aprons, bags and more. They have learnt so much here and are very happy and grateful to have had the opportunity to take these sewing classes with Don Alberto, our sewing instructor.

All of the women that graduated after finishing the sewing classes are always welcome to come to visit Don Alberto, for any sewing matter. They can also keep practicing here in the Foundation until they get their own machines.

This new embroidery class is part of Mayan Families courses included in FUNDAMAYA. Five women have started with the classes using these donated machines. They are really excited to learn this new technique with the computer and sewing machine, as it is very new for them. They are willing to continue learning every day, so they can overcome and become economically independent.
