Action Kivu is a wonderful nonprofit that helps women who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo by teaching them to sew at a sewing workshop. Action Kivu also pays for children to go to school and supports other programs for women that provide them ways to support themselves and their families. Not only is this a great cause it’s also involves sewing! You can’t get better than that.
