We were excited and honored the Fung (1906) Foundation was again willing to match employee 2015 donations in support of the SGVTS program.  Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in our partnership.

New Sewing Machines for Vocational Training Classes

6 new sewing machines were purchased with thanks to the Fung (1906) Foundation. These were added to the new sewing room. The girls are very excited to start their classes again after the long cold winter and to be able to use these wonderful machines. They are learning so many things and are becoming competent seamstresses who are able to sew many different types of clothes and also be able to repair older clothes in order to get maximum life out of each garment.

For My Parents

My name is Lhamotso and I am 22 years old. I have had very little education and so I have never had a job where I can earn a good income. My family rely on our livestock to survive but last winter was really heavy snow and five of our cattle were trapped. We couldn’t do anything about it. This devastated my family.
