Inuguration of Shoshana Computer centre, Guntur.

Hai,

Inuguration of  Shoshana Computer centre, Guntur.

 Very happy to share that Shoshana started its very first computer centre in Guntur.

So far we have Medical and Sewing projects. These projects are mainly for supporting the very poor community.  Especially for women those who are illiterate daily workers, agricultural coolies , domestic helpers etc for their self help and for their better living.

For the first time we started computer training for needy boys and girls belonging to lower middle class community especially those who have basic education .  Introducing job oriented courses  and other advanced courses like Graphic designing etc. Both software and hardware courses.

Shoshana provided the basic start up for the project and it is maintained by like minded volunteers who are computer technicians. Besides their regular jobs as computer training instructors in colleges they took time in training needy boys and girls in job oriented courses.



Selected few needy boys and girls for the first batch.  On last friday we had the opening of the centre with an introduction class.  Mr. Chandra is the instructor for multi media and graphic designing courses.

Pics of the women at Vengal reddy nagar, Chilakaluripet.


This is the very first group of women at this sewing centre which is recently started.

The instructor Mrs.Benny kumari has 8 students right now and in them half of the women are chilli pickers.  These girls are single, drop outs. They  are working  in the near by chilli fields to support their parents.


Chilli harvest season is going on so they are finding time to attend the free sewing classes as well as working.


Rest of the women  are mostly housewives coming from agricultural backgrounds. Husbands are mainly farmers. Having small children at home, they have not much time to go to fields. They want to utilize the free sewing classes.They are still  in the beginning stage but i heard from the instructor that they are quite fast in making samples.


The sewing centre is right now running at the instructor's house but very soon is going to shift to the community hall in this  area which is a multi purpose building which is mainly used for the community service oriented programmes.
