 Latest pics from Shoshana sewing centre, Gaddipadu - Guntur.

Sewing projects are running as usually after the Covid lockdown. Usually the duration of the sewing class takes 8 months to one year but it was taking more time than usual due to the lock downs and as the women are not gathering in group. Each one was having seperate timings . Now the situation came to  normal for the last few months and  the women are having their regular sewing classes.

Coming to the  present group of women  -  All five of them are school drop outs, one is married and the remaining four are single. Helping in household work. Parents are workers(sweepers) in local municipality. Coming from economically backward sections these women have no other alternate income source except working as daily workers because of the less educational qualification.

These women want to be independent and have their own way of decent living. The instructors are encouraging them and helping them to learn as much as they can and eventually provide them with a sewing machine to start their own shop or referring them to  a tailor shop where they could find work.

The instructor Mrs. Nirmala has been a part of Shoshana for the last 20 years and ever since she has been teaching hundreds of women to be independent. Happy to see that the sewing centre is still running successfully helping women for their self help. Shoshana - Germany made it possible all these years helping hundreds of families for their self help.









On behalf of all the projects, I wish all the friends and well wishers of Shoshana a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Shoshana Medical Centre, Ravipadu

Nurse - Bala sundari

Ravipadu is a small area away from the main town of Narasaraopet. 


Shoshana has a medical project in one of the backward areas of Ravipadu where majority of the people are agricultural labourers. Both men and women work in fields.

This medical project mostly work as first aid clinic. Beside giving the basic medication, free blood pressure check ups  and Sugar tests are done. Since people are mostly daily workers they get immediate help for minor injuries like cuts, bleeding wounds etc. They get the initial treatment before they see a doctor.

The nurse is from the same area so people had the best use of it during the Covid lock down period. Especially for old people who can't go to long distances to get the basic medication.

Before the project was maintained by a male nurse, recently a new nurse joined the project. Nurse has the experience of working in a private hospital for the past few years. Besides that she took up the responsibility of the medical project. She is also from the same area so she is familiar with the people and they could easily reach her any time. She has the access to a hospital she could easily help the people to see the doctor if there is any emergency.

Putting up some of the latest pics from the project.
