Our Tailoring Project is committed to Community and Women's Empowerment.
In Indian traditional society, women are usually restricted to domestic work and do not enjoy economical independence. That is why it is important to create job opportunities for them.
Moreover, professional tailoring is normally considered as a 'man's job' in India and therefore to acquire professional tailoring skills for a woman becomes truly empowering. The all-woman staff is trained to design and produce tailored goods which are sold under the "LEARN for LIFE" brand, as well as to manage the physical storefronts and the online shop.
All products sold are hand-made, the fabrics used are hand-printed and many are hand-woven and only natural dyes are used according the traditional techniques.
100% of profits go to further support the project.
The school provides free education, for 140 children from kindergarten to grade 6, from the ages of 4 to 16 years, who reside in the impoverished Aurangabad district of Varanasi.
The project provides free Vocational Training and employment for underprivileged section of society, while promoting sustainable organic farming and local food production.
