The Tailoring workshop will be organised for women from marginalised communities for two months in the Siddipet district of Telangana state. The workshop demands 6 sewing machines and a professional trainer. Crowdfunding has aided us in purchasing 5 sewing machines so far, we are trying our best to collect more funds to purchase one more sewing machine, salary for the professional trainer, rent and maintenance expenditure for the workspace. Why only tailoring?. Tailoring as an employment choice can make them self employed and can give them a life of dignity. The income generation is all around the year and this definitely aids women in acquiring financial independence. The objective of this programme is to give the opportunity to the women in Siddipet to become self employed and independent by the means of the skill of tailoring which will be taught by certified professionals.
We have managed to arrange a training centre setup, which includes 6 sewing machines which are purchased by crowd funding and few kindhearted donors. Getting a commercial space for lease with invite financial burden on the organization as we do not have a consistent source of funding. However, we have taken that burden onto our shoulders. We are planning to lease the workspace, we have chosen a few spaces and the rent is still the subject of discussion. We are in NEED of SIX SEWING MACHINES to accommodate 50 women for the 2 month workshop.
