$110 will put a women through our six month tailoring training program
$10,000 provides the equipment, sewing machines, materials and staff needed to start a tailoring centre and run it for two years.
Our Good Shepherd Tailoring Training Centers are an effective tool for empowering Dalit women. Dalit women are considered the "Dalits among the Dalits" because as women they not only face caste discrimination but also gender discrimination. Our training center provides Dalit women hope, dignity and a way to escape the extreme discrimination and exploitation.
Unskilled unemployment is extremely common across India, particularly among the Dalit women. These women, because of poverty and family pressures, have never had the opportunity to pursue an education nor a vocation. Through our training they will have the opportunity to gain vocational skills and economic independence.
