Thank you for changing the life of a mother in India! Your gift of a sewing machine and tailoring school has empowered women like Rajeswari to provide for her family.
Like many women in India, Rajeswari had a limited education and no job to support her family. She only went to school until the 7th grade and did not have many skills to pursue a good career.
“We had financial struggles and I needed a short training program to get a certificate so that I could get a good job. I was so excited when I got admitted to the tailoring school” says Rajeswari.
Because of your generosity and compassion, this past quarter Rajeswari and 84 other women learned how to make all kinds of clothing and are able to support their families. Learning how to sew changed her life. She is so grateful to you for her wonderful training.
Thank you again for your compassion towards women like Rajeswari. To help another woman in need, give a sewing machine today.
“Now I am bold enough to lead my life with this free sewing machine.”
Thank you for giving Cheppula the opportunity to change the lives of her and her children. Because of you, Cheppula was able to receive training, and upon her graduation, a treadle sewing machine to allow her to provide for her family.
She says, “I have two children who are 2 years and 4 years old. My husband died from tuberculosis recently, and he was only the bread giver to my family. He never allowed me to go for work outside, and he maintained everything sufficiently for us. He was a daily wage worker in a market yard. But after his death everything became upside down. My father-in-law and mother-in-law are very old, and unable to work anymore. They too are suffering with ill health, and could not help feed us. I was deeply struggled to get rid of this situation.
I joined in the school and successfully completed my training and acquired the sewing skills. Now I am bold enough to lead my life with this free sewing machine. I will work hard and gain for my children and make them to study. My honest gratitude for your support.”
There are currently more than 80 women enrolled in the tailoring schools. Each batch of classes brings so much hope to these women. They know that once they graduate, they’ll have a skill they can use to help their families, and it’s all thanks to you!
You gave a mom in India a free tailoring education
“I was so happy I had the opportunity to go through the tailoring classes,” said Satyavathi.
Thank you for giving mothers like Satyavathi a free tailoring education. Because of you, Satyavathi was able to receive a treadle sewing machine along with a certificate of completion right after graduation.
Satyavathi used to face a lot of financial struggles in her family. Her husband was unable to find consistent work, which made it difficult to support their children.
When she was accepted into India Partners’ tailoring school she was so happy and excited.
“This training was a great blessing. I’m able to work and support my family,” said Satyavathi. “I’m grateful for your love and support.”
There are currently more than 60 women enrolled in the tailoring schools. Each batch of classes brings so much hope to these women. They know that once they graduate, they’ll have a skill they can use to help their families, and it’s all thanks to you!
Many women living in poverty in India have little education and limited skills. Your gift is making a difference because it's giving a woman a chance to support her family. Unlike mothers who work 12 hours a day in the fields, sewing at a home-based business enables a mother to care for her child while still earning a decent living wage.
Yesamma is one of the women your gift is helping. She recently received a sewing machine after graduating from the tailoring school this past June. Yesamma along with 78 other women completed their tailoring education and they all received a free sewing machine. Thank you for being a blessing to these women!
Yesamma is a widow and mother of two children. The stress of raising her family on her own weighed heavily on her. She could barely provide food for her family every day. When she was given the chance to join the tailoring school she was filled with hope. She worked hard for six months and learned how to sew.
"Today, I can stitch clothes and earn money to support my family," says Yesamma. "The training is a blessing to me and I am grateful to India Partners for this wonderful training and also for the certificate and sewing machine," says Yesamma.
Because of your compassion, you are helping women like Yesamma provide for her family. Thank you for changing her life! To help another woman in need, give a sewing machine today.
Thank you for empowering women in India and providing them with a sewing machine. Your gift is helping poor women have the opportunity to attend a tailoring school where they learn how to sew.
Many women live in poor, rural villages and have little education or skills for work. Your gift is life changing. After 6 months of training, they receive a free sewing machine along with a certificate of completion.
Thirty-six women recently completed their training. There are nine schools in operation and they have a total of 96 women enrolled in their classes.
Because of your compassion, you are helping women like Aruna support her family. She is married and has two young girls. Her husband's wages aren't enough to meet the family's daily expenses. Aruna wanted to learn tailoring so she could do something with her hands to earn money. She wanted to help her family thrive.
Aruna has graduated from a government certified tailoring program. She received a new sewing machine and is now helping to support her family by sewing clothes! Her girls have a great role model in their mom. Thank you for changing Aruna's life and the lives of her whole family.
