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.

We are working hard to link seamstresses from around the world to combat extreme poverty by providing re-usable feminine hygiene supplies and health training to girls in Zambia. This enables them to attend school all month and improve their academic performance.

Our Unique Product Packaging, The Sew Powerful Purse! We need the help and support of the global sewing community to tackle issue. We also need a beautiful product package, and what is more beautiful than amazing hand-made purses? So involving the western seamstresses accomplishes these two vitally important goals. We are very lucky to have our international shipping donated by a very large non-profit.
