30 to be released inmates of the Central Prison, Trichy are now the pride owners of the skill of screen printing. They were trained by Mr. Selvakumar who is an expert in screen printing. The trainees attended the training with enthusiasm, motivation and inherent interest. The trainer gave a hands on training to these 30 inmates and they were also introduced to vinyl printing.
Information about the front and back end tie ups were also given to the trainees. These 30 will be issued a certificate soon and they are now the proud owners of an income earning skill.
Mr. Arasan says that the training has helped him positively in coming out from the distress and depression he had been going through. He says "We own skills now. Thanks to New Life and the donors who are committed in motivating us, train us and help us come out of our dark world. The skill gave me confidence and the courage to face the world once i go out."
Dear friends, help many Arasans come out of darkness.
56 motivated women inmates of the Special Prison for Women, Trichirappalli, were taught to produce washing powder. They were trained in the different qualities of the washing powder, the raw materials used for the preparation of the powder, the cost of producing it and the profit margin that can be set. All the women participated with enthusiasm and were asking a series of questions on the front and back end tie-ups (purchase of raw materials and sale of the washing powder made), pricing, packing, branding, marketing, etc.
Mrs. Santhi (age 38) from Trichy, who was arrested for illicit liquor selling expressed her gratitude to the trainer for showing her a new way. Santhi’s husband died when she was 37 and she is left in the streets with her two small boys. She did not know what to do to feed her children. It was at that time, she met Saroja a woman who sells illicit liquor. Saroja introduced Santhi to the liquor manufacturer. He employed her and gave her sufficient money and with this money Santhi can take care of her two children. But she was not happy with what she was doing. It was then the police arrested her and she was sentenced.
While attending the training in the Prison, Santhi made up her mind to involve in washing powder manufacturing and stop selling liquor. She expressed her gratitude to New Life and its trainer. She says she will shift to a new place after her release and start making the washing powder and sell it. She is confident that she can sell the powder she makes. New Life is happy that Santhi now has ‘Shanthi’ (Peace).
We thank you dear donors who make such wonderful things happen!
"We meet today To thank Thee for the era done, And Thee for the opening one"
WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
We are overwhelmed that all the 28 trainees who attended the poly bag nursery training are now in possession of a certificate. The certificates were issued to them in a function on 2nd October, the Gandhi Jayanthi Day. by the Superintendent of Police, Trichirappalli. You can see a trainee receiving the certificate in the photo. Our trainer handed over the raised seedlings to the prison superintendent for planting them inside the prison.
Mr. Vaiyapuri who learnt to raise the nursery says he will have his nursery once he gets discharged and wants to specialize in ornamental plants. He says he found happiness when he planted the seeds, watered them and when he saw them grow and being handed over for planting. It gives me a feeling of constructive power and channelises myenergy positively, says Mr.Vaiyapuri.
Since the Prison department is happy with the training pattern of New Life they have asked us to give further trainings to the inmates on a continuous basis. This is possible only with the support of funders like you. Hence we request the support of your good selves in taking our project further and spread words about the same to your friends and relatives.
