In March 2017, IFPD and Agragami started sewing and beauty classes for girls and women.
The main objective of these classes is to enable them to work from home, or seek work outside home, and earn an income for themselves.
- The courses last for 6 month, and classes are held daily for 2 hours.
- A sewing workshop and a beauty parlour have been set up within the project, where part of the beneficiaries can put their training into practice, and start earning an income.
- The sewing workshop has been used for instance to equip the hotel school in Bodhgaya (bed covers, curtains, etc.)
- The beauty parlour, which also serves for training purposes, welcomes a female clientele.
