Nonprofit Info from SewMuchHope
A representative from Sewmuchhope will bring information and a sample of their work. SMH specializes in retrofitting side-mount motorized machines with customized hand crank mechanisms, so the machines can be used in areas without electricity! This organization sponsors microbusiness in Africa and gets machines into the hands of those in rural areas and in need of economic opportunity. You’ll be amazed at this democratization of technology and maybe in your own basement or garage, your family has a machine that can be retrofitted, too!
