Distribution of Sewing machines - Gamela Bazar, Vijayawada.
Sewing project at the rag pickers colony - Gamela bazar, Vijayawada.
First group of women who finished their sewing class at Gamela bazar, Vijayawada. With the initiation from a social worker friend, Shoshana started Sewing project at the Rag picker's colony whose main occupation is waste picking, segregating and bringing the waste to a place where they could sell it. As we found out, in the process, majority of the women are prone to diseases, abuse, different addictions etc. Couldn't send their children to school, single parenting and finally ending up bringing their children to the same profession.
In order to give the needy women another means of livelihood and a better living, Shoshana started a sewing project under the supervision of Mrs. Hemima. The first group of 5 women started their sewing class in Nov-21 and finished by the end of July-22.
Shoshana provided them with a sewing machine and a certificate. Though these machines are used ones the women could use them without any problem. Also they could start their work right away and the instructor Hemima would do the follow ups.
