First of all, we all participants are really thankful to Samsal, South Korea & Center for Disabled Children Assistance, Kathmandu, Nepal. With your help of one year tailoring course at Chanauta, Kapilvastu, we had learned many things from small items to big items. Now we can sew our family members, neighbor’s & relatives dresses which will be income generation source for us. Before we had to go to market to make our dress, now we can make our dress on staying at home or workshop.
During last evaluation, CDCA found that most of project benefiters (received training on 2013 – 24 & on 2014 – 30) had already started their own workshop at rent place or own house. To establish the workshop or buy the sewing machine, they took the loan from the women group which was founded on 2013. This group was founded in purpose of starting their own business after completing the training. CDCA help them to form a group. Every month they put Rs. 50 in that account and give the loan in 1.5% interest, now in that account they have Rs.85000. In that group, non formal education women group & benefiters of smokeless stove of 2014 are also involved. Someone who want to do their own business like tailoring workshop, goat farming, beauty parlor etc. they take a loan from the committee by paying the interest. Someone who wants to join in the group who are not benefiters of our projects can also stay in the group.
The Women 2014/15 below has already started the work at their own houses. For starting the business some of them have taken the loan from the women group.
These women below took the loan from the women group and they already paid back their loan.
Those benefiters of the projects who hasn’t still start the business, said that they are particising at their home by sewing clothes for their families to be perfect. They said that sooner or later the skill they received, they will make it as their income generation. Those benefiters who started the business of goat farming & pig farming, they said their skill will be always applicable.
The new session of tailoring class Kapilvastu 2015 has started from May. As last year, this class is always lead by trainer Ms. Chanda Thapa. There are 30 participants and as always there are 3 shifts per day from 10 to 16:45 and 6 days per week. All participants are new and from nearby Chanauta. Some has basic knowledge and some are 10 class & 12 class pass education.
We had bought 6 leg machines & 1 interlock machine for 24 participants in 2013 (as per budget). As number of participants (30) increases from 2014. For this session they bought the 2 leg machines more because 6 machines are not enough. As we don’t have the budget for machines, CDCA has asked them to buy the machines from the women group fund.
Ms. Chanda Thapa is a good trainer as well as she do the good a coordination too.
Now the group is doing basic items of baby clothes.
