Women’s livelihood- sustained tailoring training

50 beneficiaries of sewing machines belonging to the Irula community, were given sustained training by Sevalaya staff for one full year, as part of an agreement with L&T Infotech, who donated the machines. These were distributed to the beneficiaries in March 2016, after their livelihood and homes were washed away during the Chennai floods, in December 2015.
