We are the World Blogfest (#WATWB) focuses on positive stories no matter where they’re found. It is all about spreading peace and humanity on social media.
In the spirit of ‘In darkness be light, here’s a tiny but positive story in these covid times: over a hundred youths who were left jobless during the COVID-induced lockdown have managed to find good jobs after they got training in tailoring and dress designing from an entrepreneur.
“Mahadev Badami, a dress designer and tailor who owns Anupama Dresses, has made a name for himself by sewing traditional skirts, veils and children’s dresses. As he was getting enough orders, he outsourced the sewing to skilled workers from different places in and around the district.
When the lockdown was enforced, many skilled tailors found it hard to supply their dresses as the lack of transportation became a barrier. So Mahadev decided to rope in local youths who were in search of jobs amid the pandemic. He selected a few villagers and trained them in tailoring.”
