Industrial Stitching Training

Since 2011, we have been working to improve the quality of lives in the catchment of our power project in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu. Our initiatives across 39 villages focus on women and children in the areas of skilling, health, and education.

65 women from Puduchattram and nearby villages were trained in industrial sewing and are now working at a stitching centre. The facility has the capacity to sew nearly 5000 pieces per month and has fulfilled orders from traders in Chennai. The centre is now self-sustained under the aegis of an apparel company in Pondicherry. Thanks to their improved efficiency and quality of work, the women have now begun to process export orders.
