These are the core projects of Sambhali Trust. These centres were established to provide underprivileged women from deprived areas of Jodhpur an opportunity to have a good basic education and vocational skill training in sewing and embroidery. Rajasthan is a patriarchal society with women and girls treated as second class citizens, often deemed not worthy of an education due to poverty, family and cultural reasons. Teenage girls who may not have been to school or needed to drop out because of their family circumstances and responsibilities, find that they can meet with other girls in the same situation and freely discuss their feelings (which they may be not allowed to do at home) and provide support for each other as a group.

We provide:

The women and girls attend for a 12-month course, after which time the aim is to provide each graduate with a sewing machine to enable them to continue sewing at home and potentially provide an income for themselves.
