Sewing Center at Gabage City

We had a chance to visit a different part of garbage city. There is a sewing center to teach young girls and women trades to provide jobs for their future. We were able to watch them use looms, make quilts and make paper. Stacey and her female friends loved watching these women and spending time with them.

This is a picture of Garbage City from a mountain overlook. These houses are literally covered in trash.

These women are making paper gift bags with fresh flowers embedded in the paper.

This is a loom for making blankets, purses and rugs. When these girls graduate from this program they can purchase one of these looms as their own for a very small price.

Stacey with some of the girls-she hopes to go back a lot and spend more time with them!!
