Sangeetha, aged 30 is from a poor family. Her family situation compelled her to stop education after +2 and got married at the age of 22. Now she is mother of two children.
Her husband is working as security guard in a private company, where he gets very low salary. She decided to go to work. But she could not get a decent job in an office or elsewhere.
She joined our embroidery training and got free training for 45 days. During training she quickly learned embroidery technique. After training she took S.H.G loan of INR.6,000/= and purchased a Embroidery cot and started her own embroidery job. She is selling finished sarees in near by villages. Now she is earning an average of INR 250/= per day. Now she is confident enough to send her children to school.
This success has allowed her to sustain her family, which comprises 4 members, and to send her 2 children to school. Like Sangeetha, There are many were succeeded through our skills development programme.
Trainings are great opportunities for women to further develop their marketable skills and therefore a little step towards self independence
This will not be possible without the support of you. Thank you very much to all the donors who have supported our rural women.
