    vulnerable school drop out girls to learn tailoring skills

    from Ramsing Sapori Village, Kamrup (M) district, Assam, India

Ten girls from Ramshing Sapori Village, in Kamrup, Assam, are school drop outs, because of poverty, their families lost their farming lands in the recent floods and now the pandemic has increased their vulnerability. 

They are vulnerable to child marriage, due to existing social and gender norms of girl child being burden to families in India.

I am supporting them in learning Tailoring skills, so that they can start their own small/medium enterprises.

Careu365 is a Charity/NGO, working on issues of disability, child rights and protection with communities in Assam, since 2014.  They have been working with these 10 girls and others in the village, providing them non-formal education and basic financial literacy.

A recent need-skill assessment done by the NGO, revealed that these girls know basic tailoring skills and if they are guided well, they could go on to become good tailors and start earning money. Currently the centre runs with only 2 sewing machines and they are in dire need of financial support to buy new machines and keep the centre running.

They are in need of financial support to buy :

1. Two heavy duty sewing machines ( costing 500 Pounds/ 673 USD/ 50,000 INR)
2. Raw Materials (100 pounds/ 135 USD/ 10,000 INR)
3. Hiring of expert for a 15 day course (150 pounds/  197 USD/ 15,000 INR)
4. Miscellaneous/Admin expenses  ( 50 pounds/ 65 USD/ 5,000 INR)


Please help these young girls escape child poverty and reach their potential.

For every donation above 10 pounds, the NGO has committed to plant a tree with a plaque with the donor's name (Please leave your name when you donate here). So you are not only helping these girls, but also helping the environment heal.

CareU365 shall share all bills and receipts with all donors, you can personally reach out to Bhrigu Borthakur, who runs the NGO/Charity in the below mentioned details:
