Jehovah Jare Motherless Babies Home, Orlu, Imo state,Special Education Center(school for the deaf and mentally retarded), Orlu, Imo State.With your contribution and partnership we can reach out to quite a number of Orphanage homes and individuals in the society.CHALLENGES WE FACE;there are four(4) major challenges we face in achieving our aim for the Charity Project; FUNDS: -we are in need of funds to purchase fabrics used in achieving the project.
Fabrics used for the charity were from the leftover fabrics made for our customers and part of The Company's (LA PENZA COUTURE) little income is used in purchasing the materials which isn't enough to achieve our aim of 100 clothes or more a week for the charity.SEWING EQUIPMENT:- Sewing equipment is another major problem we're faced with in this charity project. Due to the few number of machines we have; the set goal seems difficult to achieve; but with the help of God through you, it'll be actualized.MANPOWER: -Manpower is also a vital issue we're faced with in this charity project.Presently, there are few staff assigned to the charity project, making it almost impossible to achieve A hundred (100) clothes for charity in a week,hence, slowing the aim of One Million Clothes Annually:FACTORY SPACE:-More manpower and sewing equipment require a larger factory space. So, getting a bigger factory space will be helpful in actualizing our goal.
HOW YOU CAN HELP ACHIEVE OUR AIM:Ways to help this God inspired project are:
1. FUNDING :-Some find it difficult to feed let alone cloth themselves due to one financial reason or another. This is why we are asking you to cloth a child today. No amount is considered too little or too much when it comes to helping the less privileged.Givers indeed never lack.
2. PROVISION OF SEWING EQUIPMENT:-In order to achieve the set goal of 100 clothes or more a week, we need more machines. Presently, we are working with few sewing machines but additional machines will be of great assistance to the charity project of making 100 clothes a week or more easy to achieve.
3. MANPOWER :-Due to few number of staff on the charity project, we would appreciate new staff injections to help support the project. We currently have few staffs but will wish to increase the number of staffs to meet up with the project target. These staffs also have to be paid for this great course to achieve the set goal.
4. LARGE FACTORY SPACE :-The charity project will also require a larger space to meet up with our aim. If it's laid in your heart, you can help this God inspired project through donation of funds or provision or a larger space.OTHER HELP CAN BE IN FORM OF:Industrial Weaving Machines, Fabrics, and other sewing materials.
