Sharing a story of one of the beneficiaries of Shoshana


Anitha, one of the former students of Shoshana sewing centre, Vijayawada. Her husband was a tailor . After finishing her free sewing class at Shoshana, she joined her husband in running the tailor shop at home. She has 2 boys and elderly in-laws to look after. 

Unfortunately her husband had a brain stroke and paralysed partially. He couldn't work .The family responsibility is on her now. She also was detected with cancer and she is undergoing treatment now. With the family responsibility and growing medical expenses, she is in debts. 

Besides having her regular sewing machine she requested for a zigzag machine, with which she could earn some extra income. Recently Shoshana provided her with a zigzag machine.

Heartful thanks to all the donors who made it possible to help a needy women in not only giving a free sewing class but also helping her in running her family at this difficult time.

Shoshana Sewing Centre, Pedanandipadu



Present group of women for sewing class at Shoshana sewing project - Pedanandipadu village



Started last year - now towards the end of the course. Blouse stitching usually taught at the end of the course.  The women after they start working on their own, they could earn 150 to 200 rupees per piece if they are good in making models.


Many people lost their work during the lockdown and there is still decrease in man power in many factories, companies etc due to Corona. 

The sewing course has been a good  source of income for these needy women especially during these difficult times where they couldn't find any other work.

Shoshana Medical Project - Dasaripalem - Guntur 

Dasaripalem is one of the remote areas in Guntur. Large area with more than a thousand families mostly with backward communities like daily workers and agricultural labourers. Shoshana started the medical help at Dasaripalem along with a local Ngo who is working for children's education.




Shoshana is providing basic medication along with free Blood pressure checkups under the supervision of a trained nurse. Since the area is far away from the city, without proper roads and transport facility, having a first aid centre is very helpful for the people. In my last visit, came across women who are in need of diabetic check ups and medication.




During the lockdown time also the medical centre was open to the people who are in need of help.


Thankful to all the donors for keeping faith in our work and have been supporting the needy people all these years.
