Reigniting hope & enacting change from within communities
Mafusa learned to sew from her mother, Diwilara. Now, they are business partners, working together to run a shop where they create the most exquisite saris and kurtas in Bangladesh. For Diwilara, sewing is a source of pride: “I provide these garments for my community, so they must be of the highest quality.”
But, the work is also about so much more than that. Diwilara’s shop brings dignity and hope to both mother and daughter. Diwilara gained her sewing skills through a class with World Renew’s local partner and found a way to provide for her family. She then taught Mafusa herself, and together, Diwilara and Mafusa are teaching Mafusa’s daughter. Today, their family is benefiting from new economic opportunities—and Mafusa is instilling in her daughter the same skills and love of beauty passed down to her.
Through World Renew, women like Mafusa and Dwilara are learning that a single sewing class can stitch a new future of opportunity. With every gift, you can help to sew these beautiful stories of change.
