About 47 percent of rural women are illiterate. Living in poverty with a limited education greatly hinders these women from finding quality jobs to support their families. They are often at risk of being trapped in dehumanizing professions (like the sex trade) in order to feed their children.
Our tailoring schools focus on helping people in and around slums. Women in these areas are often underestimated, treated as lesser and made to live a life of dependence with low self-esteem and lack of confidence. Most of the students at our sewing school are 13 years or older, already carrying the responsibilities of family members such as cooking, taking care of siblings or even having their own children. This is why we believe it is so important to provide them with access to education, skills training and empowerment programs.
Your gift will help women in India develop a sense of self-worth. Sewing gives them a chance to do something meaningful even with a limited education. You will provide them with a sewing machine to start their own self-sustaining tailoring business. These women, who are often poor mothers and widows, will have an opportunity to use their skills to rise out of poverty and work toward a promising future for themselves and their families.
