Sewing

Bring Hope will restore the dignity of displaced people

through its different programs

Sewing Hope is a practical project with far-reaching benefits for individuals involved. With the purpose of helping the women in refugee families be able to contribute to their household income, we have taken an indigenous hand-woven textile to sew into unique, well-made bags that appeal to a global market.

 

Each jajim bag is unique and carries the name of the maker along with the message Dignity, Sustainability, and Future. The jajim bags represent the desire of the refugee women to look to their future with hope and determination. They symbolize a victory over oppression and conflict.

 

Piloted in January 2017 and managed and organized by experienced sewing volunteers from around the world, Sewing Hope employs 12 women in Baharka Camp, located 30 minutes outside Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan. The sewing ladies receive a monthly income (Incentive) which not only enables them to contribute to their household resources, but also engenders self-esteem, a sense of accomplishment, fosters a commitment to be part of something worthwhile, and connects them to the world outside of their immediate environment.

 

It sets an example for other women in the community that progress is possible. The women themselves are positive role models for their own daughters. Empowering adults means the children reap the rewards. Apart from the physical and emotional health benefits for the people involved in Sewing Hope, the intention is for the Project to be eventually self-sustaining.

 

A closer, the current goal is for the Project to cover half of its yearly budget, so BHHF can reach multiple teams all working towards a common goal.

Everyone can bring hope

BHHF’s primary objective of humanitarian aid is to save lives, alleviate suffering, as well as to give the most vulnerable group (displaced children) hope for the future. BHHF has provided humanitarian aid with short-term and long-term help to homeless refugees, victims of natural disasters, wars and famines, and poor people.

Heartwarming news. Once a month.
