Instructor Anitha with her students.

Shoshana started helping the needy women in this area for the last 7 years and so far  around 60 women got benefited with the free tailoring course as well as with a sewing machine on a small credit. We make it a point to know their family details so that we could help them in all possible ways.The instructor is careful in picking up the women because majority of them come from similar background. In them it is necessary to choose the ones who are in desperate need of support.

 Want to share the story of one of the students of this Sewing centre.  Her name is Annamani. Finished her schooling and got married at an young age. Husband also is not much educated, he is a construction coolie. She is living with her three daughters in a rented house. In cities it is a must that both  the couple have to work to run the family.

Her elder daughter is mentally challeged and because of medical negligence she lost both her legs.Totally depended on her mother. Also in need of medical help once in a while.Annamani has two more small school going girls.  As of now it is not possible for her to go to work with these kids and husband is the only earning member.

The instructor Anitha picked her for the free training class with the intention of helping her for her self help so she could  work from home besides taking care of the household work.  Earning some money on her own gives her the possibility of meeting her elder daughter's special needs.
Also we are finding the possibilities of how we could help her daughter.
