In August 2018 a new project began in Rajahmundry: a sewing center for widows. Here up to eight widows have the opportunity to learn how to work with fabrics and sewing machines.
Each training course runs for half a year and is free of charge. Nehemia team India was able to rent a room and hire their own sewing teacher. The project aims at empowering the widows to run their own micro businesses from home. The women are trained to create school uniforms and simple pieces of clothing. Whoever graduates from the program is given a sewing machine and a basic sewing set.
