Women sewing skill training center is being started by the training of some 7 women and some of them now making their own business by doing hand sewing or embroidery work at their household level.
Now AHD staff conducted meetings in women group and also visits women at household level to their sewing work going on by sewing center. Now by the provision of sewing machines they will be able to earn a higher amount for income generation. AHD staff conducted some 4 training of trainers for sewing skills promotion among women and still 6 trainings will be conducted in coming days along with distribution of 25 sewing machines.
We plan to provide sewing machines by next month and are waiting for some funds for the possible distribution plan.
