AWIU Provides A Grant To HVWA To Help Create Self Employment To Underprivileged Women Through Tailoring Program

Through AWIU’s grant, HVWA identified disadvantaged women and girls in Amalapuram, and its surrounding villages of East Godavari district in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India and surveyed in these villages to create sustainable livelihoods.

Training will be provided in tailoring skills to several batches of 10 women and girls. In the 6 months of training, women learn the cutting, different types of stitching, blouses cutting, uniforms designing, inner wear preparation, different types of embroidery techniques, etc. AWIU’s grant enabled HVWA’s skill development training center to provide sewing machines along with required raw material. HVWA is also thankful to its volunteers for their active role. An assessment of the progress and impact of this project will be made at the end of six month training in 2017.
