Visit to Sewing Project, Rajiv Gandhi nagar, GunturN

New batch of women at Shoshana sewing centre, Rajiv Gandhi nagar, Guntur.

Nirmala and Kamala with the new batch of women

The new batch started in Nov-2012 and the instructors Nirmala and Kamala are taking care of both Stitching, Embroidery and  Painting for the same set of women.
All the women are married coming from a below middle class families mostly painters, daily workers.etc

There is one special case in this batch. Small girl who is 13 years of age. Her name is Shabnam. Usually we prefer girls who finished their school for the course but this girl really needed our support to build her carrier.

Shabnam with Nirmala ( Instructor )
Shabnam is a muslim girl whose parents are daily workers. She has speech problem  since childhood and so she was bullied by her classmates at School. It was difficult for her to cope with them and so she dropped school in the middle. She was confused about her future and her parents having heard about our free sewing class encouraged her to join the course and now she is feeling confident about her self help in future even without enough education.
