Visit to Angalakuduru sewing project

My visit to Angalakuduru Sewing Project which was started in 2004. The instructor is Mrs. Krishnaveni. Angalakuduru is a big village which is near to Tenali and is full of banana and lemon fields. The students we have over there are mostly from agricultural back ground.  Either farmers or daily workers in fields. Lately it is difficult for them to depend completely on farming because of in sufficient rains or flooding so the people are looking for other alternatives for their livelihood besides farming .

Women are interested in tailoring and embroidery with which they could earn some money working at home. It is a sure income source for them provided how much time they spend per day. At this Sewing centre, we completed 7 batches which is around 67 students and we have a present batch of 10 students, morning and evening batches. It was started last year September so they are towards the end of the course.

Krishnaveni recently changed her sewing centre to a different house and my visit was mainly to check out the area and meet the students since they are going to finish their course soon.
