A huge 'thanks' to Suzie at Oosh New Zealand, who kindly donated funds for a new treadle sewing machine for our sewing classes. That means we can empower another lady per intake! Thanks Suzie, for helping our business expand. We know you love women looking after women. Nini and the bright yellow 'Suzie machine' at the Holi Boli sewing house in rural India.
Thanks to C3 Taupo, New Zealand, we have been able to purchase six more treadle machines for the sewing school. This enables us to take in more ladies for the three month sewing course. We can now train fifteen ladies per class. Thank you C3 Taupo!
A huge 'thanks' to Greta and team in Nelson for their amazing Vineyard Banquet to promote awareness and raise funds for Holi Boli in India. They sold many Holi Boli dresses on the night and also had donations for a ladies sewing class tuition fees and sponsorship for a new sewing machine! Thank you so much Nelson peps for your generosity!
During the Indian summer holiday (May/June) 2015, Ana enjoyed the novelty of popping in-store, in-person, to one of our favorite NZ retailers Two Lippy Ladies. "Thank you" Two Lippy Ladies for keeping the Holi Boli ladies busy with dress orders and supporting business with ethics. http://twolippyladies.co.nz/
