At the age of ten, she moved to Minotree to live with her aunt
because her mother and father couldn't provide for their large family.
Her mother and father worked hard in a garden.
But that work wouldn't pay the bills.
Anttionise was able to attend school up to 6th grade,
after that her aunt couldn't afford to pay for schooling anymore.
Anttionise got maried at age 20 and had her first daughter.
After three children and ten years get husband was murdered.
A few years after that Anttionise remarried and had two more children.
That husband left her after the announcement of her last pregnancy.
Leaving her with four children and one more on the way.
Since then the little one has arrived and she is struggling to provide for her family.
I am heading to Haiti in November and have a treadle sewing machine sitting in my home that I would love to take down to the Denim House for Anttionise and begin teaching her the basics of sewing and hire her to work with The Denim Project.
Her story is one of many suffering extreme poverty in Haiti and while we cannot help everyone...we can help her and her family.
By sponsoringAnttionise, you will provide her with
a treadle sewing machine,
access to fabric,
and training to use these items
both to work with The Denim Project and to branch out on her own in sewing for those in her communitywhether for
or simple repairs to make the clothes they own last longer.
Would you be willing to sponsor entrepreneur, Anttionise, and give her and her family an opportunity to rise up out of poverty?
