“I want to be respected.”

The By Grace Foundation is a female founded 501(c)(3) nonprofit that sponsors the training and education of women in impoverished communities.

In Ghana, By Grace sponsors technical training, specifically sewing, for women without the means to afford it. Becoming a seamstress is a highly regarded profession, and By Grace sponsors training so that women are equipped to become entrepreneurs and stop the cycle of generational poverty in their families.

These are their stories.

How old are you?

Why do you want to learn to sew?

I am learning a skill because I want to be respected in society

 

(Munira was ill on the day of interviewing and unable to answer many questions. She is still a valuable part of the By Grace team though, and we want her voice to be heard whether she has 5 or 500 words to say)
