Pics from Vengal reddy nagar, Chilakaluripet

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.
