The sewing school teaches between 20 and 40 ladies per year to make clothes and a living for themselves.
Started in 1992, the school has given over 400 students an income-generating skill.
Over the years Chetonar Dak has also provided training in electrical work, carpentry and mechanics as opportunities to do so arose.
The Sewing School started with the gift of a single machine. It now has ten. The one-year programme starts with theoretical measurement and cutting out of samples.
Since 1992 830 students have learned to make a range of garments including salwar chemise, shirts, trousers, and underclothes.
Now Chetonar Dak has built on the tremendous success of the sewing programme by setting up a women's co-operative to support the ladies' businesses. Opened in November 2015, the shop buys in bulk and provides a nearby outlet where tailors and clients can discuss and buy their needs.
The next step will be co-operative marketing of group products.
After education and good health, income is the third necessity for a fulfilling life.
Nasma completed Chetonar Dak's sewing training a couple of years ago and can now work in her own home, making a range of clothes for her family and for people nearby.
