Challenge

Azad India Foundation is working in Kishanganj which is one of the poorest districts of Bihar.AIF is running stitching centre in different villages where girls learn cutting and tailoring in a six month course. Most of the girls belong to poor families who work as farm labour. Some of the girls are trafficked to cities as Kishanganj is border area and prone to human trafficking. They are unable to buy sewing machine on their own as the cost of the machine is prohibitive for majority of them.

Solution

The sewing machine will help the girls to become self reliant and improve their earning skills. They do not have to work as labour or fall into trap of human trafficking. They can lead their lives with dignity.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact would help the poor families in living their lives with dignity. They will be able to break the vicious circle of poverty. The economic self reliance will help girls attain confidence and courage to lead lives on their own terms.
