Bapatla belongs to coastal region. Our Sewing project is around 8km from the beach. Location of the project is an area alloted for back ward communities so almost all the students who attend the stitching classes come from very poor background mostly agricultural labourers and building construction workers.
Manjula is the instructor and this is the second batch of students for her in Bapatla. This project turned out to be a free tailoring class as well as shop so the students have the chance of working as well as learning. They are quite successful in making products for sale under the supervision of Manjula. Not just learning they could earn while learning.
