Shoshana Sewing project, Angalakuduru
The main objective of this tailoring training program is to enhance the quality of life of women
and teenage girls through enhancement of their skills and knowledge.
Due to poverty, these teenage girls drop out of high school to get married and work as temporary farm workers, sweepers and manual scavengers.
They needed to learn newer vocational skills such as tailoring (sewing) which can help
them earn more income and become economically self-sufficient and independent.
This will reduce poverty, help them support their family needs without being dependent on husband and parents. In order to help them, Shoshana started free tailoring ( sewing ) training centers in various locations.
In these training centers, tailoring skills are given free of cost. Students are trained by a
qualified professional tailoring teacher. Certificates are given to those who successfully complete the course.
These tailoring classes enable women/Girls in rural and sub-urban areas to earn on their own, making them self- confident and self-dependent. After completing of 8 months training, some women/Girls can start their own tailoring shops, while many can secure, sub-contract work from large tailoring shops.
The instructor along with the local society motivate
the rural women to join the course and also take
care in selecting beneficiaries as a group.
We come across many such women as students who are single parents, victims of domestic violence etc.
For them this training program gives a scope to be
independent , to increase their household income
and to improve their living conditions.
