NRLM Cutting & Tailoring Centres helping women to start livelihood in J&K

A Cutting and Tailoring centre was inaugurated by National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM UMEED) in Achan village in district Pulwama in Jammu & Kashmir. Arsheed Ahmad Bhatt, Programme Manager, JKRLM said, the first batch was started with 15 women. After the training of the first batch is over then we will shift the cutting and tailoring centre to the next village to teach women of that village. And those who have learnt the cutting and tailoring they start a group activity of a producer group where they open a boutique. And in the boutique they make available cloth for stitching. The women learn new designs at the cutting and tailoring centre. Hafiza Begum, a beneficiary of NRLM says, we are thankful to NRLM which has supported us at every step. After we get trained, we will open our own shop. There are already groups of women working together. We will also form a group and work together so that other women can also get employment. Shazia Parveen, another beneficiary says, at first we used to sit at home and just do household work. Now here at NRLM we learnt a lot. We got funds, revolving funds and community investment funds. We are grateful to NRLM for the centre here and the initiative by the Jammu & Kashmir government. Another beneficiary of NRLM Hasina says, previously we were under stress. We had to borrow sewing machines to get any work done. Now through NRLM we have machines and we can do the work of two hours in one hour or less.
