Impact Story from Baramulla, Kashmir

Sandeep Kaur was a part of our Fashion and Designing Training Program (April to October 2023) in Baramulla (Aspirational District), Kashmir supported by Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd CSR under guidance of Indian Army

Sandeep, mother of two, hails from a middle-class family. She developed an interest to pursue fashion designing course from our training center. She had the aspiration to start something of her own.

However, she was unsure about managing the expenses for the required equipment. To her relief, she got to know that all the necessary equipment would be provided at the Center as part of the training. 

During her learning journey, Sandeep found her mentor Ms. Harmit Kaur's teaching style to be very effective. Despite facing challenges due to her family, Sandeep sometimes used to miss classes but her mentor made sure that she did not miss any topics. This support encouraged Sandeep a lot. 

After completing her training, Sandeep took a loan to purchase sewing machine to open her boutique. With all the hard work, she now successfully operates her own boutique from home, and has started earning an average of 7k to 10k per month. She aspires to take this forward, and also help others in the community.
