Did you know that we use treadle machines at Sifa which operate by pumping a foot pedal? Why? Because these dependable machines use no electricity. After graduating, our students can set up their machines literally anywhere without needing electricity to run their business. .
Have you ever tried using a treadle machine? Stop by Sifa and our students & staff would love to give you a chance to try.

Sisters. Besties. Models. Jesus-lovers. Sifa-supporters. .
If you live in Tanzania, you are not going to want to miss the student’s Fashion Show on May 26th. Gowns like these and much more will walk the student-led runway and all will be available for purchase that night! It’s going to be fun!
Imagine going from never even using scissors to designing your own line for a fashion show. Family, friends and supporters are all there to see your creativity and work shine bright. It’s about so much more than fashion. It’s seeing dreams coming true, local businesses being started, women empowered, and celebrating precious lives being transformed before our eyes. .
We are thankful for our Creator who made us all in HIS image; with the ability to create. So we continue to encourage our students to create beautiful things, dream big, and bring glory to our Lord through it all.

Heri ya Pasaka! Happy Easter from SIFA!
The students are working hard preparing new designs for their fashion show. Look at the these adorable linen dresses made by Rehema, who is leading the show. .
Graduation is just around the corner, so the fashion show is like our student’s final project. They are using a variety of fabrics to each come up with their own collection. .
Any suggestions or advice for our student from our fashionista followers?
