This project ‘Sewing Hope’ for the wellbeing of slum people in Kerala. It tries to enable the underprivileged population to lead dignified lives through productive work and build sustainable communities.
Karimadom is a slum in the outskirts of Trivandrum city, Kerala, India. The slum is almost 90 years old with about 600 households. The colony is economically, socially, culturally and educationally backward. 89 % of the population do not have a permanent source of income. Lack of proper resources for the satisfaction of basic needs makes them more
vulnerable. They face discrimination by the wider society.

unemployed women of the slum community and sell them at an affordable price and Profit sharing to the needy and thereby develop a culture of modest way of clothing.
