Tailoring makes women empowered
Bangladesh Environment and Development Society (BEDS) has been trying to improve the socio-economic condition of the women of Mathurapur village (Munshiganj union of Shyamnagar sub district of Satkhira district) by providing several training like tailoring training.
A few local women learned tailoring from the trainings provided by BEDS. They learned measurement and cutting of the cloths. BEDS supported some tailoring machine to them. Now a small cottage industry has been developed. More women are coming in their center and learning and making bags, masks and cloths with the women. They are getting much order from market and their socio-economic condition has also been increased.
Feedbacks from the beneficiaries:
Some of the beneficiary expresses their feeling. ‘‘We live adjacent to Sundarbans. My family depends on the resources of Sundarbans. The money we have earned by harvesting resources from the Sundarbans are not enough for me and my family. That’s, I do tailoring. By tailoring I met up my personal as well as family expenses. I can afford the expenses of my education and college fee. Earning from the tailoring, is sufficient for me now.”
Capacity building training and sewing equipment are necessary for the women to improve their life standard. So, BEDS has taken an initiative to empower 50 women of Mathurapur village by developing their skill on sewing and also providing them equipment related to sewing through raising fund from GlobalGiving platform.
So, it’s a heartiest appeal to all the donors for being kind to help those vulnerable women to give them a chance to have an alternate employment opportunity and lead a better life.
