3. No. 41
No.41, literally means, for one. We started on a whim and a prayer, with the intent of teaching young women from the Noel Orphanage in Gisenyi, Rwanda not only to sew, a culturally relevant trade that would always sustain them, but also to give back to their community. Our girls are given employment and a fair wage, and in return, with the sale of their items, they support a local secondary school by providing a hot, healthy lunch to nearly 1200 students and teachers, every day. When you join with us, you are truly changing the world FOR ONE.
