Tailoring Training started

Dear Donors,

You would be happy to know that the tailoring training for the inmates of the Special Prison for Women in Trichirappalli is started on the 11th of January 2013. Thanks to you dear donors who made it possible and supported this task of training the women.

The women who are attending the training will be trained in the basics of stiching, and will have an extensive training in cutting and stiching the blouses. Since the blouse is the dress item mostly worn by the women in Tamil Nadu, blouse stiching will fetch them a good income once they get out of the prison and start their small unit. A minimum of Rs.5000/- (100$) is enough to buy a good sewing machine. And by stiching a blouse one can get an income of $1 to 2 depending on the model of the blouse. The trainees are so excited to get trained in this income generating opportunity.

One of the trainee is imprisoned by the complaint of her sister in law under the domestic violence prevention act. The crime she committed was scolding her sister in law during an argument. She says that once she goes out of the prison, she will buy a machine and start stiching blouses of her neighbours. And I will regain my dignity she says.

Thank you dear donors for supporting these women. Kindly spread words about the work of New Life to your friends and relatives and help us help such women who are inside the prison for emotional outbursts.   

With regards

F. Beatrice Vanaja
