In an effort to provide women with another source of income, a sewing program has been set up. Women in nearby areas have the opportunity to participate in a sewing course. They are trained to create the typical Indian dresses: salwar kurta, saree blouses and petticoats as well as frocks. Women gather together in village centres to learn together. Once they complete the course, they take an official government exam for certification. As villages complete these sessions, new sessions are set up in other villages.
