RAKHI'S BY KGNM TRUST INMATES, HYDERABAD
As the festive season of Rakshabandan is fast approaching, I encouraged inmates of Kasturba Gandhi National Memorial Trust (KGNMT, a house of destitute women), Hyderabad to make Rakhis. This is their first attempt to make Rakhis. I was amazed at their commitment and interest. They made several Rakhi’s of different styles and colors.
The inmates actively participated and made Rakhis. This activity bonded them like a glue. Their confidence was also boosted. They were so excited when they made their first Rakhi sale, that it was very difficult to contain their excitement.
The inmates already sold about 150 Rakhis. The inmates are also planning some activities like diya making, greeting cards etc. for Diwali season.
The intent of these activities is to make them feel that they are also capable of making something that is useful to the society, generate some revenues and more importantly inject the dose of self-confidence and make them feel that they are also capable of developing creative artifacts.
If you have ideas as to how we can encourage and make KGNMT inmates self-reliant, send your comments to Ravi Talluri: firstname.lastname@example.org
