 Within the last two months of period we have undertaken the project of making Tambulam Bags. The main objective of this project is to identify the basic tailors who are interested to stitch Tambulam Bags & earn minimal wages in their spare time. Initial survey was undertaken for men & women in Hosadurga, Jagalur and Chitradurga area. Finally the project was completed with producing 5000 Tambulam Bags after working with 8 different tailors staying in & around Chitradurga district. This project helped us to create livelihood income especially for Widow, Separated & Divorced women.
