She do not have knowlwdge of any skill.She came to us with a smile to enquire about our sewing training. I observed a line of sorrow in her smile.

After hearing her family background, we decided to give training for her. On completion,we provided a sewing machine to start self business.We asked her, what she will do with sewing machine. she said" i will start sewing business and educate my children, give them nutrutious food and save a portion of it for my children safety". This thoughtful reply moved me.

Now i am stitching Blouses and petticoats, and earn sufficient to feed my children and educate them

Now I am confident that I can educate my children and make them respectable citizens of the nation.
