This year, 2022, we raised funds to sustain our Sewing Project here in Ottawa, especially among low-income families.NewLife is empowering women and youth with sewing skills to help them set up a home-base business. The Project has been raising funds for shipment of barrels of gently used clothing and accessories to economically disadvantaged men, women and children through Barbecue and bazaar events, yard sale, marketing of custom-made products and crafts during various exhibition programs. We raise fund for education of young women and children through our backpack and school supplies drive project.
This is one of our fundraiser events where we prepare delicious African dishes from various African countries and display our products locally produced by women and children from our NewLife Designs Marketing and Sales Division. This event has served as an opportunity to bring the immediate Ottawa and Gatineau community together and educate our participants about the Black culture namely from cuisine to tradition and values.
