Tailoring Training Center
"There is no tool for development as effective than the empowerment of women" - Kofi AnnanWomen have always been marginalized and downgraded to the status of subjugated class in the Indian society. Women have not actively participated in their emancipation due to their lack of economic independence and illiteracy. There is a need to address the issue by raising the status of women. Keeping this issue in mind, LIGHT Family has started running training programs for the empowerment of women
. The main objective of this tailoring training program is to enhance the quality of life of women and teenage girls through enhancement of their skills and knowledge. Due to poverty, these teenage girls drop out of high school to get married and work as temporary farm workers, sweepers and manual scavengers. They needed to learn newer vocational skills such as tailoring (sewing) which can help them earn more income and become economically self-sufficient and independent. This will alleviate poverty, help them support their family needs without being dependent of husband and parents. In order to help them, LIGHT started free tailoring (sewing) training centers in various locations.
In these training canters, tailoring skills are taught. Students are trained by a qualified professional tailoring teacher. These tailoring classes enable women/girls in rural village to earn on their own, making them self-confident and self-dependent. After successful completion of 6 months training, women are given sewing machine to take home with. Women start their own tailoring shops and make money. So far we have trained 460 women and all of them sewing machines and doing their ownlittle business.
Your help towards empowering poor women will be life changing opportunity for a better future.
