SJMF recently provided a $3135 grant to open a tailoring school for Adivasi young women. Under the tutelage of the Franciscan sisters, the young women learn tailoring so that they may return to their local village to open their own shop. This program encourages these young women to remain in their villages to earn an income, rather than be seduced by the rather dubious “employments” offered in the larger cities.
