Mask Making in Bihar

This women’s tailoring group in Bihar is making progress on the large order of masks requested by the village council. Here, the women SHG members hand over masks to Manju Singh, the ‘Mukhiya Pradan,’ the village council head. Manju Singh is a successful woman who became the first woman to be elected the Panchayat head, after being a student in one of our vocational classes. She was also a driving force for achieving #ODF (open defecation free) status for over 16 Panchayats in Bihar. She also made the trip to Kerala in 2017 to be awarded by the President of India for efforts to achieve ODF. Under her leadership, the women are on track to make the much-needed masks for the pandemic.
