SKILLING RURAL YOUTH OF KHURJA

In the unorganized and organised apparel industry in India, the role of a pattern maker, colloquially called ‘Masterji’, has always been a man's work, passed from father to son in a traditional set-up. Pattern making is the most essential part to the success of ready-to-wear clothing, and therefore, a demanding profession. Women are not invited in this profession as the mindset of the family and society holds them back. The profession, is thus discriminating in nature, and a road-block in gender equality.

WE BELIEVE that participation in all profession by men and women should be by choice rather than by gender.

COURSE AT
SDC KHURJA

proactive equality through skilling

Sleepwell Foundation in collaboration with MasterG conducts courses on Garment Designing for Women in an effort to skill rural women, especially the underprivileged and the marginalised, for a dignified livelihood and economic prosperity.

Our training modules are designed to help women learn not only the art of creating garments but more so, the art of questioning traditional design and silhouettes to create something new.

Students learn design, pattern making and sewing, and the usage of latest machinery and technology like CAD etc., over the course of a rigorous one year.

The trainees are provided with Industry Visits and Exposure regularly to keep them updated and informed on the industry front.

Tools for Imagination

It’s the machine and human collaboration that produces exciting results—novel approaches and combinations that likely wouldn’t develop if either were working alone.

We invest in tools and trainers to augment learning which encourage human creativity.
