Empowering our sisters with the gift of skills…
Sikh Relief has held its latest graduation ceremony for those underprivileged ladies who have been learning at our Jhakharwal Kirat Kamai centre in Faridkot, Panjab.
The successful young women were each presented with certificates and a brand new commercial sewing machine, enabling them to immediately use their skills to begin learning a living with dignity and self-respect.
Having been training for the last 6 months with our fulltime completely qualified teachers the ladies have taken the opportunity to learn life skills that have revolutionised their lives, no more hand outs after a well intentioned hand up has been provided.
Since the inception of the Learn to Earn project Sikh Relief has helped more than 260 women become trained via 9 training centers both in and outside Panjab, with each graduation ceremony seeing the effort and determination of Sikh women honoured with new machines and accessories ready for their new businesses to take off.
The next centre to complete the course will be the project in Nepal where 85 women are currently receiving education.
Among those present at the event included Sikh Relief’s Prof. Baljinder Singh and Advocate Bibi Kulwinder Kaur, Bhai Pal Singh France, Sikh Relief volunteers Bhai Parminder Singh Amloh, Bhai Amandeep Singh Bajayana, and Bibi Gurinder Kaur of Sikh Relief Australia.
Bhai Jarpandar Singh, Jarvand Singh Lali Sarpanch, Balvir Singh Canadian, Master Jaswant Singh and other members of the Shaheed Bhagat Singh club were also present.
The effort to rejuvenate the lives of the underprivileged continues and we need all the support today for a better tomorrow from those who can help in any little way possible. Please kindly donate here to support the Kirat Kamai, Learn to Earn centres:
