Further update on the sewing group

From wonderful Susan in Utange, via wonderful Jane, my friend, I received these photos updating us both on the progress of the ladies' sewing group in Utange.
As can be seen, they are busy creating uniforms for the pupils at the school. 

Some of these may be "sponsored" uniforms.  Pupils at Raynsford Lower School ran a stall of my creations at their summer fair, and I sent the money raised to Utange to pay for uniforms for those pupils who cannot afford to buy one.  Many have so far benefitted.

The ladies are also making traditional African clothes for people in the village, and a new venture uses the scraps of fabric from both of these to make table and floor mats.

Four women have employment, and many pupils at the school have smart uniforms.
