Jane was helping with the sewing and knitting project and sometimes she would go to the local markets to sell the products created from the sewing machines until she fell sick. She is sole bread winner in the home without her ability to work the family often goes hungry; they only have one meal a day. When the children are in school the whole day this relieves her a little. Otherwise Jane is very grateful for the support Seedlings of Change always extent to her and her family.
