Shoshana Sewing Project, Gaddipadu - Guntur.
New group of women for tailoring class
|Instructor Mrs. Nirmala with her present group of women|
Basically Tamil origin women, migrated to Andhra for work for over five decades. These families are in different kinds of occupation like construction workers, daily labourers, maids etc.
The present group of women come from families who are sweepers in the municipality. These women are illiterates, into early marriages and are housewives. Due to lack of education they have no proper jobs. In order to support families they have no alternate income source except working as daily workers. Sometimes it is difficult for them especially when they have small children at home to take care of.
These women joined the sewing class so that they could support their families and could give their children a decent education. Work from home and be with the children. Besides giving the women a free sewing class, Shoshana is providing them with a sewing machine so that they could start working as soon as they finish their class.
Here are a few pics from the present group started in the month of July-2022
