The pandemic has brought untold misery specially to underprivileged families. Since March 2021, India has been in the grips of a devastating second wave of the Covid-19 with cities were facing fresh lockdowns. Economically poor families have faced severe impact, with many losing their livelihoods and depleting their savings over the course of the pandemic. The situation is especially hard-hitting and grim for families who have lost their breadwinners. While grieving for their loved ones, they are also pushed to think for their very survival, due to lack of support. Many women have become widows and many children, orphans and now don’t have any other support system to embark on their future.
Therefore there is an urgent need for these women to be involved in income generating activities. The project aims to support such families, to stand on their own feet and achieve financial independence.
Nirmaan Organization, an NGO based in Hyderabad is helping women establish a livelihood so that they can be independent and support their families. The NGO provides sewing classes to these underprivileged women at Nirmaan training centres in Hyderabad. This campaign aims to provide sewing machines to these women who have completed the training. Each woman would receive a livelihood kit consisting of a sewing machine, stand and other accessories and would own these items.
They would then be able to set up a small business by building a customer base in their own locality stitching daily wear items like blouses, salwar kameez, frocks etc.
The women will be trained for 3 months in the Nirmaan facility.
Training is provided free of cost.
On completion of the training, they will be given USHA Sewing Machines.
The target is to support 1500 women through this project.
IF YOU FUND:
INR 8000, you support one woman.
INR 16000, you support two women.
INR 24000, you support three women.

THE KIND OF PEOPLE YOU CAN IMPACT
ABOUT ME AND THIS CAMPAIGN
My name is Sanika Bihani. I am 13 years old and in Grade 8 at Chirec International School.
I am doing this campaign to help women and give them a sustainable livelihood by providing them with sewing machines. This will completely transform their lives. The sewing machines would be given to women from underprivileged families, women who have lost their spouses to the pandemic or to those who know tailoring and are willing to work from home. This initiative will help them lead independent lives.
The fact that it costs just INR 8000 to impact a woman is amazing. I was surprised to learn that with just this much, they can have a sustainable livelihood. This will impact them and their families.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring relief to more women.
