I would like to introduce the new batch of students at our Shoshana sewing centre, Venkatappaiah colony, Guntur. Batch has few married women and the rest are girls who are school drop outs. Almost all of them are daily workers in the near by chilli yard.

Morning batch of women for sewing training at Guntur.

They earn around 100 to 150 rupees a day but their work is seasonal. It is compulsory for them that both men and women have to work to run their families since all of them belong to poor financial background.
 They are adjusting the training time according to their work time.

cloth bags instead of plastic bags
This training in tailoring and embroidery is a good option for them to earn their living when they are out of their regular work or they could also settle down as full time tailors.

This batch started two months back and the instructor Mrs.Anitha showing some of the samples made by the students.
