 CDS-Shoshana Sewing Centre, Narasaraopet

Shoshana has been training needy women in sewing and embroidery in Shalem nagar, Narasaraopet area for the last 15 years.  So far more than 150 women finished their free sewing class successfully and using their sewing skills to earn their living.

Mrs. Santhamma has been training these women from the beginning ie from the year 2007. She was a teacher and a tailoring instructor before she started working with Shoshana. She used to take minimal fee to train the women. After many years of service, she is quite familiar with the people  in the area. She lended her own house to run the sewing project.

After she joined with Shoshana, she has the opportunity of  helping hundreds of women for free of cost to be independent. Her family is with her in this process. They supported her to continue her work all these years. Even though she  crossed her retirement age she is still continuing with the same spirit in training women.

In future one of her daughters or one of her previous students may take over the sewing project but she wants to continue as long as she could.

The students had the opportunity to meet our M.D. Martha and talk to her via a video call. It was nice that she could meet the women and see what they are doing.
