In the picturesque village of Vayalur, on the 30th of August, 2023, an empowering change began its weave. As part of an initiative to bolster economic self-reliance and empower women, a tailoring class was inaugurated, offering training sessions that would span over six months.

From blouses, skirts, and churidars for women to frocks and tops for children, the curriculum was meticulously crafted to ensure the participants acquired a comprehensive skill set.

Mastering the craft wasn’t solely confined to the training sessions. To guarantee the proficiency and confidence of each participant, an examination was instituted. This wasn’t an ordinary test; it involved a viva session where each participant displayed an album filled with miniature samples of their work, bearing witness to their dedication and learning journey throughout the course.

The examination process was spearheaded by Mrs. Rani, an external examiner with a keen eye for detail and craftsmanship. Her invaluable insights and feedback ensured that the participants left well-equipped to handle professional tailoring tasks in the future.

The success of this tailoring initiative in Vayalur is not just a triumph for the village but sets a beacon for neighboring village hubs. As the women of Vayalur step out with their newfound skills, they are not just tailors but symbols of change, self-reliance, and empowerment.
