Stitching a new life

Rajiya, 18 years old

I was really happy to learn sewing at the project. The course really has changed a lot in my life. Before joining the class, I didn’t have confidence in my stitching skills. By joining the class, not only did I get skills, but I got confidence too.

Before joining the course I was very shy and found it hard to mix with other women and girls. But now, I like to share my thoughts.

I can actually earn money – the course helped me to get a job at a dress designer’s shop, so I now have financial independence.

I’m very grateful to the project.
