Sewing Machine Gifted to Vulnerable Girls

The society to which we belong is living in 21st   century but still their thoughts are very old, to change the narrow thoughts AHD took step to empower the women & girls through different program in which AHD sewing centre is on the top of the list in this program AHD started two sewing centre at a same time at unit No 5 & unit No4 Latifabad Hyderabad.

In this sewing centre girls from poor families were selected, interested in sewing course but did not have any source to accomplish or fulfill their dream by taking this step. The dream of girls comes true when AHD female staff asked them to join AHD sewing center at their door step & they were very happy & thankful to AHD. In 5 months short time period sewing course girls learned about stitching, cutting & maintenance of sewing machine after their completion at the time of certificate distribution AHD gifted 8 sewing machine to the most vulnerable girls which belongs to the most vulnerable girls belong to the poor families from which one girls was Orphan & other girls were also facing very difficulties but after their completion of six months sewing course now they are able to stitches clothes & having their own sewing machines they thanked to AHD , now the girls said “WE ARE ABLE TO STITCHES ALL THE CREDIT GOES TO AHD & WE PRAY THAT GOD GIVES MORE BLESSING TO AHD ,THEY CAN WORK FOR ALL HUMANS”

The thoughts get broader, now the girls can support their family like boys do only the need was to build up confidence & skill in them.

Developing talents to bring income and hope in women

One of the most valuable strategies in fighting extreme poverty is teaching people skills so they can learn to provide for themselves

The Women and young girls of the area are illiterate, poor and vulnerable doing house hold work in nearby house .where they get low salaries and are also  face difficult situations and are not provided with the proper care  and are always at the risk of physical and sexual abuse. Young girls may not be able to go to school due to poverty.

Lack of empowerment for women in a male dominated society and living in poverty stricken conditions are well documented areas of concern in most regions of Pakistan.  Association fir Humanitarian Development (AHD)   believes that knowledge and skills that can be practically used are key steps towards improvement and empowerment of women in their local community where such conditions exist.  

In all of our work, we target the poorest and most vulnerable people. We place a special emphasis on women in our vocational training programs, which are treated unequally and also are expected to support their families.

AHD has established two sewing centre in Latifabad No: 4 enrolled 17 girls and in Latifabad No: 5 enrolled 20 girls. In each centre we have one qualified sewing teacher. The sewing centre was started in May 2012. The course will be for six month

Our Sewing Centre programs are carefully matched with the needs of the community where we work to ensure women and girls are able to use their skills and get a job after completion. Through this project women and young girls from poor families will be trained & skilled in order to secure their future.

Sewing Centre offers classes in sewing and tailoring and embroidery so women can make clothing, earning an income and providing second help-line in generating income for their families.

After training, 37, girls after completing the course will be given sewing machines and will be able to earn income. The poor communities will be able to save their income and earn at their household level.

Sewing machines for Sindhi teenage girls in Pakistan

Funding Target

£2550

April 2012

The Big Idea

Our tailoring project will enable 50 Sindhi teenage girls to learn to sew. They will complete a 6-month apprenticeship and learn to make clothes to sell within their village and at market for a small, but vitally important income. Sindhi girls need to supplement income from working in the fields.

Need

Sindhi girls are victimized and discriminated against in many ways. They suffer violence and indignity; their work in rural pakistan is limited to daily 'household' work - manual work in rice and cotton fields involving back-breaking, long hours under the hot sun - for very little pay. They desperately need an opportunity to earn money independently and our tailoring project would solve this problem by teaching skills that can be used to generate further income.

Solution

We want to provide 50 sindhi woman with sewing machines and a teacher. Once the women have learnt to sew, any income derived from making clothes will help to buy food for their family. At the same time it will give them self-respect as well as the opportunity to save money for the months during the year when there is no work available in the fields - typically 4 months per year. Sewing machines can be shared between 2 giving more sindhi women the opportunity to learn this skill.

Impact

Our project will give oppressed sindhi women greater financial independence. Also it will give them increased self-respect, as well as respect from others in their village, especially the men. In time, these women will pass on their sewing skills to their daughters and friends thus extending the benefits of this project to more sindhi families in need. Sindhi women work extremely well together as a group - they will support one another in future by sharing their machines.

Risk

There is a risk of not being able to secure the funding for all of the sewing machines.

Reporting

Donors will be sent regular reports about the tailoring project via email, containing photographs and accounts from the sindhi women and girls who have benefitted from being taught how to sew. Project updates will also be posted regularly on our website www. ahdpak.org
