The Ruck Sack Project | Charity Auction | August 2014
The Button Tin is proud to support A Better Tomorrow - Mipur/Pakistan.
Since 2005 A Better Tomorrow has provided free education, training and employment for the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalised groups.
The Button Tin auctioned off a limited edition hand embroidered ruck sack which raised funds to buy enough sewing machines to set up a Sewing and Skills Training Centre aiming to empower abandoned adults, single mothers and widows. The women will learn the process of manufacturing and will each be given their own sewing machine to work with at home. The skills the women learn at the centre will help them start their own businesses so they can provide for their families.
