Encourage a woman to earn a living by sponsoring her tailoring and embroidery course for 3 months, INR 1700

In the effort to fight unemployment and promote self-sufficiency amongst women, Action for Development of Demos (ADD) took the initiative to provide vocational training to women from families who are below the poverty line.

How It Works

• ADD refers to the list of people below the poverty line and selects women who are 18 years and above.
• The process of selection is transparent. ADD compares the economic status of all the women from the list of potential beneficiaries and selects the most deserving, for the programme.
• ADD has their own vocational training centers where beneficiaries are enrolled for courses in tailoring or embroidery.
• They further get help from local ADD volunteers to identify other people who may not have registered and include them in the list.

The Basics

• Only one batch runs at a time and the beneficiaries do not receive any equipment (tailoring machines) at the end.
• The duration of the course is 3- months.

The Statistics

• A total of 45-50 women have been trained in 3 batches every year.
• Their target is to reach 60 women each year.

The right to live
Priti Kumari, 16 years, resident of Purbi Indira Nagar, Patna is a pity girl of ill fate. Her father named Prasad was a notorious drinker who often used to beat badly his wife. One day, he abandoned his wife and daughter in a desert. After being left helpless by her husband, Priti and her mother adopted the work of maid servant which remained the only source of income. As priti was completely illiterate, she was not able to get a job.
Fortunately ADD team could learn about her fate and advised her mother to get Priti enrolled in Tailoring and Embroidery Course under three months vocational training programme in ADD Vocational Centre. The topics covered under embroidery are the clothes printing, painting, carvings etc.
Now Priti successfully completed her course in and opened a tailoring shop. She has borrowed a machine from one of her relatives but she has planned to buy one of her own in coming days. She is now very happy with mother. She is a beginner and so she manages to earn about 1500 per month on an average.
