Indian Development Foundation in collaboration with Dr.LG Swayam Shakti Project (LGSSP) in Hayat Nagar, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh launched the first
women empowerment programme on 18-06-2012
IDF team Dr.Narayan Iyer, Mr. Samuel Vincent, Mr. Sanjay Ram and Mr. P. V. Rao - were present for the inauguration.
In CSS NAM School we from IDF are running a Bal Gurukul. All the children in this school are from the nearby slums which has a large population of Lambadi tribes. Current strength of this school is 400. These ladies from the slums are not educated and do not have any skill. But they are showing lot of interest to learn and earn for their family and children.
This project is for the women from rural and urban poor women working in the informal sector and also for mothers of these children of our Bal Gurukul who after leaving the child in school are just working as casual laborers ( if and when they get – not regularly).
This project would train these ladies in tailoring and make them self reliant. The tailoring course is for 3 months. After the training they are given a job work so that they can earn from the same project. We have donated 8 sewing machines, 2 heavy duty machines for taking up job works and one specialized machine so that they can train at least 10 women in each batch and can run min 4- 5 batches in a day so that they can train minimum 50 women in 3 months. The building for this project is donated by Dr.Laxmi Ganga from USA. This training can continue throughout. Already 60 women are enrolled for this programme.
Dr. Vijayalakshmi and Mrs. Janaki and Mrs.Prameela from CSS NAM thanked IDF team for the wonderful support.
