DBDS #017 WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT IN CHHOTA

Ranald Lopes sdb CHHOTA, JULY 8, 2009: Don Bosco Skills Training Centre once again completed another three-month course for new tailors. This time, the completion was not just with needles and scissors but with a brand new sewing machines. The twenty four simple village girls who came in daily to learn tailoring and emboridery accquired a certificate at the successful completion of the course. The surprise factor of the course was that each of the women got a sewing machine through JDW-BMZ for themselves to begin a new home business in their own villages. Thanks to JDW-BMZ who sponsored this Integrated Programme, which is just one of the many programmes they have initiated. Surely women's empowerment is just a step away in Chhota.
