CHANDI PRIYA was looking for a way to earn some extra income besides working as a dailyworker in fields. Her kids are small and it was getting difficult for her to leave them at home and go to work.  Her husband's income is not sufficient to run the family so she had to work anyway.

At that time she heard about the Sewing Project run by Shoshana at Chilakaluripet town and she made time to finish her sewing class. She thought that this skill development course will give her an alternative income source. She finished her training in the year 2017. Shoshana provided her with a sewing machine.

She rented a place to open a tailoring shop on her own and she started her business. Besides her business she could now be able to teach a few more women. She is very happy that she is able to give a better life to her children.

Few more stories:


 I was an uneducated housewife. I was unhappy that i had no way of earning a decent income except working as a daily worker. Only through Shoshana i had the opportunity to explore my skills. I now stitch for my neighbours and relatives at my convenient time. I am able to support my family. My husband and children are proud to see me working


I was an illiterate housewife. My husband is working as a driver.  I have five children. It was very difficult for us to run the family with the small income  we have. For me it was difficult to leave the kids and go to work. I was sitting at home not working, not being able to support my family.
At that time, Shoshana helped me to finish my tailoring and embroidery class in the year 2017.
Shoshana has given me the skill and provided me with a sewing machine. Today I am an independent women running a small shop at my home and supporting my family.


I felt that my low education kept me insufficient to work and earn some income for my family. Shoshana supported me to learn skills which helped me a lot. Now i am able to stitch clothes at home and earn some income for my family and give a better life to my children.
