A True Change Agent #4

Lilly has been an enthusiastic trainee in our tailoring programme at Kannagi Nagar, Chennai. She used to be a domestic worker but quit her job to learn tailoring. Lilly is considered to be the most skilled trainee in her batch and has been proactively learning the techniques through online training videos. During the lock down, Lilly and her colleagues stitched masks with the materials they had and distributed it to the members of the community for free of cost. Many in the community, cannot afford to buy masks right now, as they struggle to get by each day. This initiative has helped many to stay safe and protected. Lilly is very confident in her skill and wants to empower the women in the community by teaching tailoring someday.
