This programme was started on 23-04-2010 at Vallur, Anjaneyapuram and Sanjeevanagar villages of Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh State. India. Now SPREAWS is conducting a 6 month’s duration skill training in fashion desigining and Dress making activity to 50 impoverished women. The training will end on 23-10-2010. After completion of training we intend to distribute 50 Sewing machines among 50 women and capital investment to buy the required cloth and tools. With this help these women will start the dress making production and earn good income. 50 women will be formed into 5 Self Help Groups @ 10 women in each SHG. We will introduce ‘Savings’ scheme among these groups. Each woman will earn @ 75 EUROS per month as their net income. Within this income each woman will pay 12 Euros per month, thus 72 euros for six months to our organisation towards Revolving Fund. After 6 months of production period the entire amount (€ 72 x 50 women = € 3600) along with local contribution will be utilised for the next batch of needy 50 women in the other new village. This process will be adopted every year. Thus one time Startfund of the generous Fred Foundation will be rotated among many needy women.Thus this project will become Sustainable for ever.
