Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Damaris and Ruth's collaboration on this multi color ball design quilt showcases their dedication and resilience. As a mother-daughter team, they have found a way to support themselves through sewing while pursuing additional opportunities for personal growth and development.
Damaris not only sews from home but also takes a continuing education class to learn English. Her goal of working in a call center reflects her ambition and determination to create a better future for herself and her daughter, Aldonce. Saving money to send Aldonce to a special English immersion school demonstrates Damaris's commitment to providing her child with the best possible education.
Ruth, despite facing challenges with her eyesight, understands that sewing is a vital means of income to sustain herself. Her perseverance in continuing to sew despite the difficulty highlights her strength and resourcefulness.
Both Damaris and Ruth's efforts are commendable, as they navigate various responsibilities and strive for personal and financial stability. One Common Thread's support has played a crucial role in providing them with the opportunity to pursue their goals and improve their circumstances.
