Want to share a few pics from two of our sewing projects in Guntur.
New group of women in both the projects.
Anitha, the insturctor in this project is teaching both sewing and embroidery.
Most of the women are married and come from families of tobacco workers, construction coolies etcLast batch of women who finished their course started working and they requested for new machines.
New batch at Shoshana sewing centre, Nagaralu.
Women started their course recently and for this batch many women are interested to join the course so because of the need the instructor Mrs. Vasanth took 14 women as a group and she took out extra time for all of them.
Our very first computer centre sponsored by Shoshana, Germany and run by local computer technicians with the main aim of helping needy boys and girls in getting computer education in Photo shop, Animation, web designing, Graphic designing etc
So far we have sewing centres mainly for needy women for their self help and health centres for all needy people in rural areas. First time Shoshana is sponsoring computer centre in Guntur for boys and girls coming from financially weak background who has basic education but who can't afford to go for some advanced software courses.
The students will have an opportunity to work in Photo, animation studio or Graphic studios.

Few pics from our recently started sewing project.
We have problems in finding a place for the centre. The local people agreed to allot the community hall for the project but since it is a multi purpose centre, it was difficult to run the centre there.
For the time being the centre is running at the instructor's house.
This group of women are housewives. Mostly school dropouts. All of them have small kids at home. For them it is difficult to go as agricultural workers. This training would be an opportunity for them to work from home.
