Gradually the Indian Government is relaxing the strict measures imposed to combat Covid-19 and we have been.able to reopen the school of sewing for young girls and women of the villages
We wish to express our gratitude to PROJECT AWAKEN and to LOTUS RITUAL for the donation received for the empowerment of women. Fund collection for this donation was carried out with the collaboration of both associations.
Kunsang Jakairs and Sol Deva Nita designed an interesting online course of “Godesses, Dakinis and Yoguinis” part of the sums collected was donated to Akshy for the Sewing Project and also for food.
The sewing classes have two groups who come each day. The dressmaking course lasts for 6 months and students learn to sew basic useful garments for their families or to help them set up small businesses as other former students have done.
In this new opening we also want to welcome the new sewing teacher Ritu Devi, who was one of the first students of our sewing school, 5 years ago she did the course and now after much experience she has taken the step to be a teacher of future sewing students.
Thank you PROJECT DESPERTAR and LOTUS RITUAL for collaborating in the empowerment of women in India.
