Pics of Sewing centre, Giripuram, Vijayawada.
Though located in the city, Giripuram is an area where mostly the backward and weaker sections live. People still living in backward conditions. Alchoholism, domestic violence and other factors which are very much dominating in this area. Many children without parents, women losing husbands at early age, sick people turning their children into dropouts and child labourers, single parents are mostly seen in this area.
Shoshana started its work in this area locating needy women, helping them for their self help providing sewing machines after they finish their training in stitching and embroidery. That way many women and girls are supporting their families making efforts overcoming some of their problems.
