Oct 2020 - Until June 2021.
The Art for Aid Project and I Love First Peoples are fundraising the shipping costs for 30+ child-friendly sewing machines donated by our partner, Jenome Canada and by our wonderful public supporters of this program. The machines will be placed in 2 schools in Natuashish and Nain Labrador in 2021 for elementary students.
Sewing is fun and offers a creative way for young people to learn a valuable skill.
Art for Aid along with Jenome, will supply material and sewing notions, thread, needles, machine oil, cleaning and repair tools - everything that will be needed, will be gathered for this program and shipped to the school. One click and you're in! Support art education and quality learning tools for remote community students.
HOORAY!! I Love First Peoples and Art for Aid are delighted to partner with Janome Canada. Janome will provide 30 high-quality, child-safe sewing machines destined for schools in Labrador, enabling us to surpass our goals and DOUBLE the number of schools we will serve! Together, we will assist educators in promoting cultural learning through a valuable life skill.
We salute Janome Canada and our supporters in their commitment to advancing Reconciliation through dedicated action!
If you would like to help us with the costs of shipping, your donation can be issued an official tax receipt.
