Tailoring Training Center

The main aim of establishment of tailoring centers is to enhance the quality of life of women through increased knowledge and skills. The company realised that women need some skills to uplift their economic status. They should be able to stand on their feet and provide support to their families.

During discussions with the women of Bilakalagudur, the women showed enthusiasm in learning some skills to supplement their household income. They showed interest in learning basic stitching skills and advance tailoring, fashion designing and more by a lady trainer. To facilitate these skills, JSW Cement has established Tailoring Center at Bilakalagudur with 6 sewing machines. The main motivation for starting this center is to develop women in the community and provide an opportunity for them to better their livelihood. The women are very happy because of this center and many showed interest to join.

Currently, 30 students are enrolled. The classes are taken in two shifts every day and it is held weekly from Monday to Saturday from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. The duration of the training is 5 months.
