Muppidi, graduated from high school just as the pandemic hit. Her father is a daily wage worker, so the family falls beneath India’s poverty line. She took the lockdown period as a form of gap year, during which she was introduced to a tailoring program funded by your donation.
In broken English, Muppidi, now aged 20 said, “In this gap I got an opportunity miraculously to learn tailoring because we are under poverty line so we can’t pay to learn tailoring course by payment. Now I can stitch all the models for ladies and school dresses very neatly, and it will be fit as I already tested by practicing in this training period.”
Not only has Muppidi learned a new skill that will provide a steady income for her family, but she has acquired business and personal interaction skills, which all have contributed enormously to her confidence. “Thank you, one and all,” she said.
So, thank you so much for your kind gifts. They make it possible to train young women like Muppidi in tailoring, and provide them with their own sewing machine when they graduate.
