Pictures from Shoshana Sewing Project - Vijayawada.
Sewing Project at Giripuram Area. One of the slum areas of Vijayawada. People from all kinds of occupations live here especially daily workers. These people depend on daily wages for their living and that was cut down due to lack of work during the lockdown. More Corona cases since it is an over crowded place. Corona had a major effect in this area.
Coming to the sewing project, So far more than 150 women got their free sewing class and majority of them are running their own shops at home. In this present situation stitching of cloth masks also has become one of their sources of income.
During the lockdown sewing centre was closed for a while because many of the women who are taking sewing class had Corona. Classes started again taking necessary precautions and people are getting back to normal again.
