We visited one of the sewing projects in Vijayawada on dated 7/11. The sewing project is in the old city of Vijayawada. First it was started in Wynchpet with Mrs.Srivani as the instructor. She was a teacher before she started working with Shoshana . She trained needy women in this area for more than 10years. Most of her students are Muslims from near by slums. With the help from shoshana ,most of them have their own work shops. Srivani recently she moved to Raja rajeswari pet, Vijayawada which is also in old city.
