This project intends to give skills training in tailoring, embroidery, and fashion design courses for sustainable livelihoods to 200 women. With this vocational skills training, women will live with dignity by earning money themselves. During this training, women will learn and develop skills in tailoring & embroidery to work on sarees and blouse pieces. We provide sewing machines and tool kits to survive on their own and live with dignity.
Women are facing atrocities & harassment at work place and have no role in decision making due to lack of financial independence. They are treated as second class citizens. They are working as labourers in market yard, cleaners in hospitals, private enterprises & engaged in beedi (tobaaco) making, a hazardous profession. They are socially & culturally ill-treated. They lack employable skills & sustainable and dignified livelihoods
This tailoring & embroidery project intends to create economic development of women & break poverty. Tailoring & embroidery training will provide self-employment at their homes, can give them a daily income and can enable them to buy necessary medicines and make them capable to pay school fee for their growing children. Investment in these women is a proven path to reduce poverty. They are disadvantaged when it comes to employment, education, and work skills.
The income of these women will be enhanced and they will be independent. They need not depend on any one else. With this skills training women will be self reliant and live happily. The economic development of women will increase and they participate in decision making process. They will teach these learnt skills to other woman who are in needy position.
