Support refugee women with tools and materials for sewing, knitting and embroidery


Afghan volunteers at Harmanli refugee camp are very active. First they started their own school - for children, teenagers and adults. After the fire which burned down their classroom, they renovated a room in another building and started again. At the moment they dream of making a better use of their classroom by adding an atelier for women and teenage girls.

They would like to sew, embroider, knit and crochet - not only to pass their free time but also to learn from one another and to prepare for a fuller life in Europe. The volunteers dream of encouraging women to learn more about opportunities to create their own home-based jobs, which will allow them to earn money while taking care of their children.

They need:

  • at least 2 sewing machines
  • an iron and an ironing table
  • sewing tools - meter, chalk, scissors, etc.
  • embroidery tools - hoops, needles, etc.
  • knitting and crocheting tools - needles, hooks, etc.
  • materials - textiles, threads for sewing and embroidery, yarn, beads, etc.

Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).

It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.

    Нека да подкрепим всички тези жени, напуснали родния дом в търсене на по-добър и пълноценен живот. Да им подадем ръка и да помогнем във възможността да намерят работа, за да се грижат за децта си.

    Имате ли нужда от ютия или вече имате?

    Привет! Да, вече имаме. Поздрави!

    Здравейте! На 5ти или 6ти юли мога да ви изпратя неупотребявана шевна машина, както и някои материали, като шивашки метър, креда, малко платове и конци. Предполагам, че все още имате нужда?

  • Lydia Staikova

    Lydia Staikova (Volunteers at the Harmanli refugee camp)

    Да, благодаря!

  • Nikoleta Rueva

    Здравейте! Искам да даря стара шевна машина - от тези на дървените маси, но нямам възможност да поема разходите. Бихте ли ми предложили някакъв вариант? :)

    Здравейте! Сигурно ли е, че работи? В кое населено място се намира машината?

  • Nikoleta Rueva

    Nikoleta Rueva

    В Центъра на София. Не е включвана отдавна, но би трябвало да работи, да... Все пак не съм 100% сигурна.

  • Lydia Staikova

    Може ли да пробвате, тъй като преди време впрегнахме доста ресурс за да пренесем голяма машина, а се оказа, че не работи.

  • Nikoleta Rueva

    Nikoleta Rueva

    Да, ще проверя и ще ви пиша пак тук. Тези машини, доколкото знам, имат нужда от настройка.

    Имам налични различни платове, конци, копчета и ципове. Да изпратя ли от всичко, което имам или ви трябват конкретни неща?

    Благодаря предварително!
