MWT works with the most vulnerable, marginalised and socio-economically disadvantaged communities in South Asia.
Skills development through sewing classes is a step for these disadvantaged women towards re-instating human dignity and self-esteem.
What difference is it making to their lives?
Many of the women will be able to sell what they sew and generate additional income for their families.
They will be able to save money by making their own clothes for their families.
The choice to drop their children’s education over providing food for the family is quite common. Earning some extra money from the clothing they sell allows many mothers to continue sending their children to school.
Many women are saved from doing heavy manual labour since learning how to sew.
Families are less desperate to borrow money from Loan sharks.
Every woman that takes up the sewing course is taking up a new way of living.
