Sewing Circles
"When I got the phone call from the Angel Network, that was probably my wildest dream," says Dorothy Nairne, the founder of Africa Loves Babies, a children's clothing company that employs South African women. That call from the Angel Network was to ask if Africa Loves Babies would make school uniforms for kids in South Africa.

Thanks to the Angel Network's volunteers, hundreds of poor South African women now have jobs for the first time. Norah, one of the women who works for Africa Loves Babies, says, "The sewing circle is a miracle to us. This job, it gives me an independence for the first time."

"It's so much more than uniforms," Dorothy says. "It's uniforms that children will put on and wear and be able to go to school so they can pursue their education and change their own lives."
