A remarkable achievement by the women of Sarai Noorudinpur village at Allahabad (UP).They got school uniform order, after having completed our #TVET tailoring course. Sensing opportunity the students formed SHG, quickly took some tutorials to perfect on local uniform. It is then our social empowerment came into play. The SHG without losing confidence, remaining as one strong team continued to strive for it. Finally, the Block Education Officer true to his words, intervened and the order was given.
However, getting order from nearest school wasn’t easy as when they approached the Principal they were turned down or given multiple excuses. One repercussion of that, the Principal gave them only 20 days to stitch approx. 600 uniform (to do everything from scratch, buying garments, getting approved, taking sizes, etc etc). The #SHG handed over a neat job in 18 days, which was appreciated.
In March’17 they successfully completed the TVET tailoring course, we then organised a certificate ceremony inviting Block Education Officer, Shri. Santosh Kr. Yadav among other key government officials. The idea was also to provide for sustainable source of income for these rural girls/women.
