What's In A Uniform? on Vimeo by The Global Orphan Project

GO Threads launches sewing centers that, in their own small way, can begin to change the cycle of poverty in some of the poorest villages of our world. When you send a school uniform order, you’re not only clothing a child…you’re also giving the men and women doing the work a chance at a better life, with the dignity that comes with having a job and providing for family. These men and women then spend the money they earn in their local economy, helping to create more jobs and giving others a chance to improve their lives, as well. They help put local clothes on the backs of their own precious children. They get out of aid lines and become part of solutions.


Plus, your order helps build a business…one that can invest in equipment, raw materials and employees to compete with large sewing mills…and one that can thrive right there among the poor.


The ripple effects are profound.
