Mukti, in association with SIDBI (Small Industries Development Bank of India), has started the second phase of the tailoring training program with the MCDF members of Kankandighi GP on 26th October 2021, Tuesday at the SWAS (Swabalamban Accelerator in Sundarban)/ SIDBI training center.
Mukti has aimed to train 100 women in tailoring. In the first part, 40 women have completed the training and are now able to earn independently. In the second part, Mukti is providing training to 60 more women. It will take 30-45 days to complete the course.
Like the first time, under the guidance of the full-time instructor Mr. Biswajit Pramanik, these women are learning to make petticoats. The classes run from 11 am to 4 pm with 15 sewing machines. Mr. Pramanik is giving them both practical and theoretical knowledge.
Mukti is providing them the necessary learning appliances and after fulfilling the course everyone will receive a tailoring kit from Mukti containing cloth, threads, needles, scale, scissors, chalk and measuring tape.
After completing the training they will be able to make 30-40 pieces of petticoats every day.
Mukti will help them to market the products through Mukti Craft. But at first, they will have to self-promote their products to their neighbors. This will help to build up self-confidence among them.
The trainees Kanaklata Kar, Sonali Moyra, Kabita Das, Gita Makor, Tandra Maity, Jayanty Mondal said,” We are thankful to Mukti and SIDBI for conducting job oriented skillful training and livelihood opportunities for the poor and needy women like us. We will always be grateful to Mukti for helping us to become self-reliant. Mukti not only provides training but also supports to market of our products. The commitment of Mukti inspires us to strive for one’s own goals.”
