Like in our other courses we are unable to provide one sewing machine for each student during the classes and make the few available sewing machines accessible to the students on a roster basis.

The training involves making all types of attire commonly worn by the locals. With assistance from donor agencies we have made sewing machines available to the women, who have completed the course, for their own use in their homes. Many women are able to generate an income by taking orders and working from their home.

Also included, as part of this course, is fabric painting for use in interior decoration. To date 550 young women from extremely poor families have received this free training run by our institute.

A further 60 women who have no income of their own have also been given this training in Kilinochchi and Mullaithivu districts. A further 100 women of similar background have received this training in Batticaloa and Trincomalee districts.

Also worth noting is that 50 young women who have no family support were given a one off course in Batik making from visiting teachers from Colombo.

  Home economics
Several short courses make up this course that aims to give several handicraft skills to the women. Cake icing, hairstyling, and knitting are the three basic skills taught. In addition several other handicrafts are taught. 115 young women have received this training at our institute.
