Visit to our Vijayawada Sewing Project

Visit to our Sewing Project in Vijayawada. Vijayawada is a city in Krishna district. This place is famous for Krishna river and Prakasam Barage and there is a famous Temple of Goddess Durga. It is a busy city with lots of different business. Here we could see contrast economic situations like very rich and very poor people.

Rajeswari pet , where we have our Sewing project comes under old city. The area is little  backward compared to the  other part of the city. Here we see people who are rag pickers, daily workers, rickshaw pullers etc. Women are mostly domestic helpers. Children are mostly dropouts and child labourers.

Inorder to show an alternate livelihood for the needy women Trinity welfare Society which is a local society specially formed for the upliftment of downtrodden people approached Shoshana for their support in opening a sewing centre at Wynchpet, Vijayawada.

It was started in 2001 and so far for the last 10 years it is running effortlessly for the benefit of the poor women for their self help. Srivani has been the tailoring and embroidery instructor. She is  very good in teaching, encouraging the women and see that they settle in life .

Students made special embroidery bags for the donors.What ever knowledge they have in embroidery, they were showing in on the bags.
