'I am very happy now'



Shilpa's Story - aged 20 years


Once there was a survey in my community. Through that survey I have came to know about this class. I have decided to join the class and to learn the sewing skills. I left the school in 6th STD and after that did not join any course. But now I have completed the course successfully. The course has build confidence in me. I learn different types of blouse and Panjabi suits. I have started taking orders from outside and earn money from it. My brother gave me money to buy a secondhand machine. I am very happy now. After my marriage also I will keep on stitching the blouse and dresses.

I am very thankful to your project and giving me the skills and confidence to be independent.
