Club News
Here is an update on Tony's Sewaid Projects around the world.  Well done, Tony and all your helpers!
 
Uganda
Glenda, our head sewing teacher is currently at the School For Life in Uganda, teaching at our Sewaid sewing workshop at the Katuuso school. This workshop is making a lot of great product, including uniforms for schools and fashion garments under their Kumi label. Glenda is there for three weeks checking on quality controls and maintenance of equipment etc. Thanks Glenda for the great job you are doing.
 
Zimbabwe
Leanne Abbott is in Chikombedzi Zimbabwe where she is teaching sewing at the local high school.
Sewaid has helped Leanne with machines and supplies and she has advised that the students were once again very grateful for such small things like safety pins and such like that they can not get there. In particular the seams rippers were of great fascination as they had never seen such a  tool !
 
Fiji
Currently Sewaid is purchasing a new industrial high speed sewing machine and high speed industrial overlocker for Koroipeta. These machines are for the new Sewaid workshop which will soon be located in their  new enterprise building which is now almost completed. More on this next month.
 
Cambodia
Last month a new overlocker and  some spare parts and accessories were kindly transported to our Sewaid workshop at Sustainable Cambodia by a visiting school group from Bayview Colledge in Portland Victoria. Thanks to teacher Zac Jefferies for carrying this for us.  Now we are packing up another shipment of fabrics which will be kindly transported by Jenny Knight in her November container. We are always very grateful to the number of other NGOs that help us with transport.

Our Sewaid teacher team for East Timor in November (17th – 30th )  is all complete , and we are now busy preparing the shipment of machines, fabrics and accessories which will go down to Rotary DIK  next week for shipment to East Timor.
