Young Student + Classroom, Shamli District, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2019

Here is a portrait of the young girl from the previous video. What gives me courage to present this work to all of you is nothing compared to the courage she had to get in front of her classmates. What was most incredible is that she did so without hesitation seemingly, and has my sincerest respect. 

What we are looking to do is establish four sewing centers, each supporting about 12 students. The students attend classes for two hours a day, and are supplied with fabric as well for their lessons. At the end of their course each will receive a sewing machine to take home.

A dozen people each putting $50 forward on a monthly basis is needed. Anyone interested in helping with this work may reach out to me directly. For those of us already supporting, this is our project and we are attempting to expand it. Your generosity is very much appreciated!
