A stitch in time changes lives

Kilkumari tailoring school
Kilkumari tailoring school

Twenty young women freed from the practice of child slavery known as Kamlari recently began a tailoring class and are already producing an impressive array of clothing.

Once they complete the three-month training, they will have the skills needed to start their own tailoring businesses. They can borrow seed money from the loan cooperative operated by the Freed Kamlari Development Forum.

Former Kamlari Dil Kumari Chaudhary started the tailoring program in Nepalgunj, Nepal in 2014 with the help of Nepal Youth Foundation. Dozens of girls have already completed the training program.

The tailoring class is a part of NYF’s larger vocational training program for former Kamlari, which prepares young women for careers in farming, hairdressing, computer techs, electricians – even motorcycle mechanics.

Thank you for helping these young women make new lives.

Namaste!
