In this new project, SPREAWS is providing vocational training in Tailoring and Embroidery to 25 socially-disadvantaged rural young women at two central locations in the Dugganapalli and Sivalpalli villages of Chennur Mandal, Kadapa district.
The required sewing and embroidery machines and the raw materials required for training have been procured and the classes started. The training is being conducted in 2 batches (morning and afternoon) to allow more personal attention to the students.
The training curriculum is covering a wide range of practical skills, including cutting and stitching various garments, hemming, button stitching, embroidery on sarees and blouses, and more. Regular motivational classes have also been conducted to inspire and empower the trainees to actively engage in women’s development initiatives.
The program is designed to be self-sustaining after one year of PPI funding to provide similar training to other women in the subsequent years. SPREAWS will also be able to use self-generated funds to provide low-interest loans to the trainees to purchase the sewing machines for starting their own small businesses.
