These beautiful blankets come to Earthlover from The ConneXions Vocational Training Center, started in 2002 with 6 young underprivileged women from the slums. After a six month training in sewing and making paper craft products, they were working on orders; and getting paid on a piece rate. In a small production unit they continue to produce beautifully hand crafted greeting cards and gift bags. ConneXions focus is on the Urban Poor particularly young women in the 16- 25yr age group. Since May 2005 the project is in conjunction with Emmanuel Ministries Calcutta and the local University and focuses on vocational training in tailoring. The certified course from the University aims to provide all the know-how necessary to secure a job in a Manufacturing Unit, to work from home as a piece worker, to train others in tailoring and even to set up an independent business. Further they are trained in English, literacy, maths, budgeting and take lessons on women issues, like exploitation, legal rights, health and hygiene. ConneXions wants to be a place where women's educational, vocational, social, emotional and spiritual needs are met.
