Slum Women Sew at home to Support Family Income
With urbanization, there is rapid increase in slum and informal settlement populaiton. Most such people work in odd jobs, as casual or semi-skilled labourers, loading and unloading labour and workers in factories on small wages.
Slum families usually have uncertain and meagre income from labour, small trade, vending, factory work, semi-skilled work. UHRC mentored slum women have set-up small sewing units in slum houses with loan from UHRC mentored women’s savings groups and own savings.
Over 2200 women sew shirts, trousers, ladies’ garments, carry bags and other items to contribute to steadily improving the economic stability of their families.
This way, working at home they support family income as well as look after children, family and housework.
