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.
