MAKERS MISSION || February 24 - March 3
Calling all MAKERS to join me for Made's 3rd India Makers Mission trip to Hyderabad, India! In past trips, we've taught sewing and jewelry making. This year, we want a special emphasis on KNITTING, with the other specialties welcome as well!
You'll be immersed in the Indian culture by staying in a main street hotel, just a 15 minute taxi ride away from our area of service. We'll enjoy local cuisine, entertainment, shopping, as well as popular tourist destinations to temples, mosques, and an ancient palace.
After a week intensive instruction, we'll organize a fashion show of all the students' work and award them with certificates of achievement and completion. It's truly a heart-warming moment to see the added confidence that these women gain from the skills they have learned in such a short amount of time.

Q | What if I am only available for 1 week?

Q | When do I buy my flight?
A | Once registration has ended and everyone has secured their spot, I'll give the go ahead for which flights to get. If we don't get the same flights, we'll all try to arrive around the same times. We'll all take the same taxi bus from the airport.
Q | I'd like to come on the service trip, but I don't know how to sew. What can I help with?
A | Learning from past years, it's helpful for the teachers to have extra volunteers there to entertain the kids while their mother's are learning. You can play games, sing songs, and practice English and writing! Many options!
