Our dream was to create a place where women could learn valuable life-skills and eventually support their families out of the cycle of poverty. This dream is coming into reality every day as women learn to read and write, learn to sew, learn to make jewelry, learn to cook, and learn to run their own businesses. We offer four different education classes: literacy, beading, sewing, and cooking.  It is our ultimate desire to see women discover their God-given talents and abilities and to know they are treasured themselves!

If you would like to help by sponsoring one of our women, please click on the subscribe button below.  The sponsorship is $58/month for 12 months.  You may choose to renew each year.

A Starfish named Sherley

Sherley was born on February 13, 1991. She is married and does not have any children.

Sherley has known much heartache and loss. Her father died in 2001, and three of her six siblings have also passed away. Yet, Sherley is resilient and learning to live full of God's joy.

Sherley is one of the fabulous women in Heartline's Sewing School. The outfit she models below was designed and created by her. The Haitian people love the Brazilian soccer team, and this outfit was inspired by the Brazilian flag. It took her four weeks to complete her ensemble, which includes the skirt and top, sandals, purse, earrings, two bracelets, a necklace, and two rings.

"I came to Heartline to learn as much as I can to help me to care for my mother and family. I, as well, want to learn as much as I can to be able to teach others. I want my country to be beautiful." - Sherley

Thanks for all you do to support our programs and those who are involved in them!

Program Success

  • Many sewing school graduates have made enough money to buy their own sewing machines and start their own businesses
  • Literacy allows the women to know true prices at the store, read contracts for their kids to go to school, understand medicinal doses and much more
  • The cooking school enables women to tap into different gifts and prepares them for employment in restaurants and resorts
