Disha Tailoring Center

Published Tue, Jul 30, 19. Written by Valeria Miller.

16 women successfully completed their tailoring course in the previous academic year. When Kolkata City Mission started this tailoring center with the help of Partnership World Wide 2017- 18, many women living in the slums had no idea that this institution would one day grow up and that they would get a certified course which would add value to conduct their own business. Sumi is one among these women who completed the course successfully and entered into the marketplace for her business. She took fabric from the wholesale market and began to produce night gowns to sell in the market. Soon her husband joined her to help take these products to the market. Right now she has four markets where she sells her products regularly. She also gets retail customers who come to her home to pick up these products. Within a year she managed to employ four more people to manage her business. Now Sumi is a proud owner of a business through which she can make a decent income.


Sumi is one among the four ladies who started her business right after the tailoring school. The rest of them have similar stories to tell. Most of the women who went through the tailoring course are self-employed and work from their homes.

2019 -20 batch has already started with 12 women who have been really inspired by the women who have already finished their course. They have decided to study with us with a goal to achieve financial freedom. These projects will surely set people free from financial constraints.
