Sponsor six months Fashion designing & Tailoring training course for a rural, unemployed young girl or woman, INR 5700

Many poor migrant families live in slums and settlements, in several towns and industrial areas of Dehradun. The youth, women and children are deprived of basic education and/or vocational training. While the men and youth work as laborers in the industries or as construction workers, the women and girls are not educated, forcing them to stay at home. If these women are provided some basic vocational training and skill development workshops, they can become viable contributors to the family’s income.

How It Works

• Balajee Sewa Sansthan has been providing skill development training including fashion design, tailoring, beautician and computer education in the community mainly to women free of cost.
• They organize themselves in self -help groups/ joint liabilities groups.
• After the course is complete, they are linked with banks for financial assistance to undertake new activities.
• Students from below the poverty line, minority and low- income groups get free training.

The Statistics

• A total of 60 poor women get trained in the vocational training facility in 3 batches.
• Balajee Sewa Sansthan targets to train 100+ women every year

Need of livelihood of poor women
A grateful Sangeeta narrates how the tailoring course has changed her life. Before joining the programme the only income of the family was from driving a rented three wheeler by her husband which brought around Rs. 6,000/ in a month after paying for the daily rent of the vehicle. She faced many times financial problems and was very worried about the education and for the future of her children.
Sangeeta approached our training centre at Nakraunda of Balajee Sewa Sansthan and shared her problem with our centre manager. Having learnt of a fashion designing cum tailoring centre run by Balajee, Sangeeta a mother of two, joined for a six months, sewing and tailoring course at Balawala. She had to commute daily for 8 kms from Jogiwala to the centre at Nakraunda to attend the course. After successfully undergone the training for 6 months she was awarded with a diploma by the training institute run by the Balajee. Since she is very poor, she given free training by us.
She now runs a tailoring shop from her home at Jogiwala and earns around 10,000 from stitching clothes in her spare time. She is all praise for the Balajee Sewa Sansthan, which runs a fashion designing cum tailoring course at Nakraunda where the poor women can learn the skill free of cost.
