A professional tailor must have a very specialized set of skills. The first batch of students at Hadiabad Village, Bihar successfully completed a 3 month tailoring #cVET course including skill training in embroidery, fabric painting, and design. The students were fortunate to have an extremely capable and patient teacher who is a subject matter expert (SME): Amna Khatun. Her energy and determination are commendable despite the challenges of traveling from a neighboring village to conduct the classes.
During the training, the students made a lot of sample clothing. Instead of keeping these products, they decided to give them away to those less fortunate. Even though many of the students themselves came from underprivileged backgrounds, they were inspired by the life skills classes and the teacher conduct a community event to distribute the clothing.
The students hope to create an artisan SHG to design and sell clothing at a nominal cost to those less fortunate and take up uniform orders for a local school.
We are gearing up for the second batch of students and already have interest from around 20 girls and young women who are inspired by the first group. #womenempowerment #lifeskills #bethechange #tailoring #bihar
