Hafeeza - Student from Shoshana sewing centre, Bapatla

Story of a woman named Hafeeza who has been taking stitching training in our sewing centre, Bapatla since July-12.

Some of the woman who are getting the chance of joining free sewing class are going through very bad situations in life yet they are believing that having a stitching and embroidery training would definitely help them change their life situations and make it much better than before.

One of such examples is Mrs.Hafeeza.

Hafeeza is a 23yr old muslim woman. She joined the training class in July-12. She is married and both wife and husband are daily workers living in small straw hut. She has a small boy of 4yrs of age.

Hafeeza's husband was addicted to alchohol and borrowed lots of money in their area. Lot of pressure was on him and in order to escape, he commited suicide by burning himself.

After his death the problems increased for her. Now she has to pay back all the debts. She is staying with her mother and they are running a small shop. The little money she earns, most of it goes in paying the debts.

She is making time to attend the sewing class and the instructor Manjula is helping her in getting some orders to stitch small items so she could earn some money during the training period.

After finishing her class she would like to set up her own tailoring shop besides their small vegetable  shop. In this present situation she can't afford to get a sewing machine on her own so she is requesting if she could get a machine she could be independent and can give her son a better education.
