How was your life before the opening of Silai Center?

I had no knowledge of Stitching; I have never learnt Silai anywhere. My father was working as a farmer but then fell ill. We have no source of income as he was the only earning person in the house. I have to do something, then my friend told me that Silai Center is being opened at our village and we can learn Silai in Rs. 50 only. I enrolled my name for the same.

What was your experience at the center?

I have learnt everything starting from the very basic till the advance like kalidaar kurta and anarkali suits. As the teacher was also very good I learnt the stitching very fast. I have to work hard, as I have to complete the household chores and then attend the classes and at the night I practice what I have learnt in the center. My experience at the center was very good as our teacher taught us the things too many time if we didn’t understand.

Have you used your learning somewhere?

Yes. As I am not allowed to go out and work and even I am not able to because my mother and father both are unwell, I have started stitching as my profession. I stitch cloths for others. I have that speed that I can stitch 4 blouses in one day after completion of the household chores. I am earning 3000 -4000 per month after learning silai at Angelique Silai Center.

Where are you using your money now?

I am using the money earned from stitching at my house as my father is no more working and my brother has a Pvt. job, I am really thankful to Angelique which has given opportunity to the village girls to earn money.

How was your life before the opening of Silai Center?

I don’t know anything of stitching or sewing, I have never done a course in this field. I have the hobbies of the boys like, I drive scooter, I drive car and I drive motorcycle. I have no restriction at the house but my mother was very much worried and she wanted me to do some course. Then the center was opened in our village. My mother told me to join the center.

What was your experience at the center?

I have learnt everything in stitching. The teacher is very good. As I told you earlier I have never stitched a hanky earlier but now I can stitch everything. The course curriculum provided by Angelique was enough for any girl to earn livelihood for herself. We learnt how to stich salwar, kurta, blouse, churidaar , baba suit etc. My experience at the center was very good as I have never found any problem or difficulty in learning.

Have you used your learning somewhere?

Yes. I am now continuously stitching for self, family and others. I have taught silai to 15 girls for 3 months for which they have paid me 300/- per month. Also I have taught 12 girls in Raipur for 1 month. I am stitching cloths for neighbors and earning 2500- 3000/- per month without going anywhere. After I learnt and earned from the course I opened a shop where I kept the equipment of Silai, so that the girls can purchase from there.

How your mother feels now?

She cannot believe that I can stitch and earn money from stitching as these courses never excited me. It’s a transformation. She is really happy now and would like to extend thanks to Angelique Foundation as the transformation just happened because of the Silai Center and the teacher provided by Angelique Foundation.
