The COVID-19 pandemic has indeed disrupted our lives. We are trying to survive really difficult times, but here is a unique initiative made by a woman entrepreneur in Rajasthan to help out poor villagers. She runs a craft centre – Kirti Craft in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur district and has started stitching face masks for protection against novel coronavirus. The person behind this noble gesture is Suman Singh (43), who runs the tailoring centre. What’s more, she is distributing them free of cost in the rural areas. Really such a selfless act that has not only got noticed, but has won people around that region.
Kirti Craft is an unusual craft centre, and has been helping out the poor and needy women, by offering them job opportunities. They help women to hone their skills in tailoring; and later they are employed them for garment production.
It’s no small contribution – for she produces 80 to 100 masks every day, spending six hours on my sewing machine. Very admirable job, indeed by a noble lady!
