Pics from Shoshana sewing centre, Venkatappaiah colony, Guntur.

Insturctor Anitha with the new group of women.

Most of women especially from this area are daily workers. Chilli pickers either in fields or Chilli markets.   Chilli is a seasonal crop so they run out of work half of the year. They need some alternate work to support their families, More over for women with small kids, it is difficult to work in fields since they have to take the kids to the fields.

Stitching ,  they could work from at home or in a tailor shop, it is convenient for them to manage the household as well as the work.

The present group of women started their sewing training in March-16 and propably they will finish by the end of this year.
Anitha, the instructor is helping them in getting proper training and see that each one who is in need gets a sewing machine and  encouraging the women to use the skill for their self help.

Pics from Shoshana Medical Centre, Swarna.

Most of the medical centres have patients with fevers, headache, vomitings and diarrhea. Since malaria is prevalent in some parts of the state, people have to take care of the precautionary steps. Government is doing awareness programs but this process might take a little while to actually get into the people.

We  have most of our medical centers in remote areas, areas which are not with clean surroundings. Most of the people are falling sick easily.

Beside medication, some of the patients are asking for mosquito nets.
