And the selected 4th Quarter 2019 nonprofit is…
This quarter, our 100 Women Who Care Northern Virginia giving circle will be collectively donating to Dar Al-hijrah Islamic Center‘s Sewing Program. The DAH Sewing Program is part of a progressive self-sufficiency track of classes to help refugees, single moms, and women in the nearby family shelter move toward financial stability. The women receive 100 hours of hands-on instruction, and upon graduation, each receives a brand new sewing machine so she can make a living from home, even if she has to care for her kids or other family members. Recently, the sewing program has been expanded to offer advanced graduates a professional externship experience, and in the coming months, DAH will launch a Sewing Cooperative in which the women can become members and earn an even more regular income stream from their work.
Our next meeting will be held on February 6, 2020 in The Mosaic Community Space, located at 2985 District Ave., Suite 100 in Merrifield.
