Women Empowered

  Syeda Ahmadi Begum and Deepa were the few lucky ones to have enrolled in the first batch of our WEP for tailoring classes. The inquiries touched over 80 and had to be divided into multiple batches. Here is what the ladies had to say about the training sessions. Deepa is a returnee to our training program. She has attended our classes in embroidery earlier and was eagerly awaiting the new sessions. She travels about 10 km every day to attend these classes. The experience of working in groups and sharing tips with other women is what makes her undertake the long journey. Syeda Ahmadi Begum is very happy to have chanced upon Sackhumvit Trust. She is surprised and thrilled that she could tailor a frock all on her own. Coming from a background where she had little opportunity to explore her talents this experience for her was unique and enjoyable. She is very thankful and wants to enroll in our other workshops.
