Sew Powerful

Sew Powerful is a Christian ministry that exists to employ and empower people to pursue life in all its fullness. We do that by creating purposeful products that change communities-things like school uniforms, reusable hygiene pads, soap, and farm fresh food.

In Zambia, we employ our team with good paying jobs. Everywhere else in the world, we ask our team members to serve as volunteers. This allows us to have an incredibly low overhead rate of under 5%. You can give with confidence knowing that we are careful stewards of the funds we receive.

A Sew Powerful Purse provides a girl with the hygiene supplies she needs to stay in school all month, even on her period. Thousands are waiting.  

Education

One purse helps the average girl reclaim 6 weeks of school a year. Academic success is improved.
