Tailors' Workshop in Les Cayes Prison

Thanks to a generous donation from Joyce Harmon, a Cross International benefactor, we were able to build a work space for the Prison Tailor Program.  There are twenty graduates, forty students and a long waiting list.  This is the only activity allowed by the prison authorities and it provides prisoners with a skill set so that they have something they can do when they leave.  In the top photo you can see the sewing machines made possible by our kind friends at Practical Compassion.


  1. Those photos are so great.

  2. I am sure that will help a lot of prisoner to change. Having that kind of project is one of the ways to help those prisoners who want to change their life. If they learn how to be a tailor, they can use it when as a source of income or as a job.
