CHHASE has educated 8000+ drop-out, out of school children and mainstreamed in formal schools. Since Tiruvallur district is child labor less at present, CHHASE is implementing after school education program, to enhance the children’s learning capacity. Along with their after school education the under privileged children, who study in private schools get school kits, fee, clothing etc. This year 160 school fee, 1200 school bags & uniforms were distributed. Differently abled children also get tricycles, specs and hearing aids. CHHASE has provided 32 tricycle, 7 specs and 12 hearing aids till to date.

                a)            Developing leadership and entrepreneurial quality among all cross section of youth through vocational/technical training program envisaged in this program, so that youth can act as focal point of dissemination of knowledge in their own area of activity.

                c)            Preventing migration of rural youth to cities by enabling the rural youth to realize that agriculture and agriculture related services are as rewarding occupations as these in urban areas.

                d)            Creating new skills among rural youth through which villages can become self-reliant.

                e)            Inspiring youth to set up own production/servicing enterprises in their own/rural areas.

Without you, it was not possible for them to buy these machines and start their sewing at their homes or get trainings. Now their sewing business is going on well and they are working at their homes and earning handsome money.

Read what Gaythri said “ I am from melmanmalai villge in Tiruvannamali district. I am from a poor family. I have 2 children. I was suffering to feed and educate our children. With CHHASE NGO training and after that I received a sewing machine free of cost, which made me to start my sewing business at my home. Now i am stitching Blouses and petticoats, and earn sufficient to feed my children and educate them

Warm Regards,

I would like to sincerely thank you on behalf of the staff and on behalf of the poor women and youth trainings & sewing machines to poor youth and women to earn income program for your generous donations to CHHASE.

In this thanks giving letter we would like to share some of the most important events with you about the program you have supported. Your support has enabled us to provide free distribution of sewing machines to 40 poor youth and women, 11 embroidery cots distributed to poor tribal in 2013-14 and in 2014-15 we have distributed 12 machines and we are making arrangement to distribute some more on 15th of October. Your support enabled us to provide refreshment to the poor women and youth for better learning.

416 women and youth undergone various trainings in 2014 and 90 women and youth trainings completed and 60 are undergoing training in 2014-15. 350 women trainings are yet to be covered to achieve our target in 2014-15.

Without you, it was not possible for them to buy these machines and start their sewing at their homes or get trainings. Now their sewing business is going on well and they are working at their homes and earning handsome money.

Here, I must mention about our failure in 2004, when we distributed sewing machines to 12 mothers of child labor to earn income and educate their children without drop out from school. Out these 12 beneficiaries, two mothers, they sold their sewing machines to meet medical expenses of family members, for a very low price of $18, whereas the original cost was $120. In our casual follow up program, we came to know that they sold. While receiving the sewing machines these beneficiaries promised us that they will use it for earning to send their children to school and they will not sell it at any circumstances. But we have not checked their expertise in tailoring. These two learned tailoring from a tailor, while working as button stitching.

We recovered the machines by paying to the buyer and again issued it to the child labor mothers and also we gave training, which gave them confidence to do their business efficiently. We arranged a meeting with all the child labor’s mothers and we once again informed them that these machines were issued for them to earn and educate their children and we will regularly monitor their activities.

This was a good lesson for us to learn and now we are monitoring the beneficiaries in regular interval and giving them necessary further training, guidance and advice.

“From failures, we can become perfect and successful”

From our successful tailoring beneficiaries, I am proud to say that Mrs. Punitha, who received our free tailoring machine, is very good in her activities and earnings. She has taught Button needlework to her husband and they both are working on sewing business. They have planned to start their sewing shop in nearby big crowding center, where they can get plenty of stitching business.

Your support towards these under privileged will bring bright future and make them remember you lifelong.

Many thanks again for your support! We will continue to keep you updated about our work and events of the following months.

With your help I have been selected for the training and with good coaching by the tailoring instructor, refreshment and encourangement, I have learned sewing faster. Now I am confident enough to do any type of stiching any type of dress.

On completion of my training, CHHASE has selected me and other poor women and gave us sewing machines with an advice that with the help of this machines , we should stitch , earn and send our children to school with out fail. Also they told us, if there is any stitching doubts & problems, we are always welcome to get clarification and machine repairs. Now I started sewing business at my home and earning.
