What is it like to be a woman? Women are often worst affected when it comes to unemployment and poverty.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has estimated that about 70% of India’s total female illiterate population is in the age group of 15 to 35. Lack of education and awareness among women add to the list of problems faced by them.In this regard, it can be said that India is still a patriarchal society where women are not given equal rights and opportunities as men.
The humble beginnings of our sewing center saw us with only 10 underprivileged women, eager to learn basic and advanced techniques of sewing. Initially, all they had was a carpeted room where they would sit on the floor, but today we are proud to have an advanced center taking up to 100 students. It has all the necessary modern industrial standard sewing machines in place and provides an excellent opportunity for those looking to further their skills and even make a livelihood out of it. It is part of our mission to encourage entrepreneurship by skilling people and helping them realize their dreams.
Our sewing center has undergone a massive transformation since its beginning.In the start, it was just a single room with 2-3 sewing machines, but now we’ve moved to a dedicated floor with multiple rooms, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment from Singer India as part of our partnership with them! We’ve also increased our capacity from 10 women to over 100, enrolling them in regular batchesThis expansion has opened up new opportunities and provided these women with a chance to hone their skills so they can be successful entrepreneurs in the future. Through this endeavor, we are playing an important role in helping these underpriviledged women of society build better lives for themselves.
Grand convocation ceremony organised to honour and inspire the women who completed our sewing training course was an immense success. Not only did these inspiring women receive recognition for their achievements, but their accomplishments also served as a beacon of hope for other local women in the community. Prominent leaders such as the MLA and councilor were in attendance, lending encouragement and providing invaluable advice on how to best take advantage of our free training courses. Our free training course enabled these women to break free from poverty, an achievement which was highlighted by many guests. This was an important step in inspiring other members of the community to take advantage of this same opportunity that has been offered. The amazing success stories served as a testament to how much one can accomplish through dedication and perseverance regardless of their current situation.
