hello,


As i said the other day we started our visits to the projects from 1st of Nov-12 as scheduled.

We have cyclone weather right now and it is raining heavily for the last two days all along the coastal line especially in Nellore, Prakasam and Guntur Dts. We had difficulty in reaching the project in that heavy rain.

Our first visit is to Shoshana sewing centre, Guntur, our very first project.


Both Nirmala and Kamala( instructors) are working with their batch of women. Even in that heavy rain all the women were present.

Nirmala has 8 students right now and they are almost at the end of the tailoring training.

Same batch of women under the training of Kamala. Embroidery and painting classes also at the end of the course.

The trainees in this batch are mostly middle aged women who are daily workers. They make time for the stitching class.


 Students already started making different patterns on sarees.

Kamala(Instructor for (Painting & Embroidery) made special advanced course  in painting recently in order to be up to date with the current trend.

These women are very happy that they have a chance to learn the expensive courses for free of cost at Shoshana sewing centre and they are very grateful to the donors for their help and for giving them an opportunity to  utilize their skills for their economic progress.
