Khiddirpore Red Light Area Community Centre
Destiny foundation has started a community centre in the heart of the Khirrirpore red light area, where job-oriented sewing skills are being taught alongside literacy training. The women there have a choice of being a part of the sewing, literacy, or both the programs. One of Destiny Reflection’s has played a very important part in building the community center.
The sewing training is conducted at Destiny Reflection’s production centre by a professional trainer, who comes in and teaches the employees everything from measurement, to cutting, to making final products.
The main aim of the literacy program is to overcome the insecurity of illiteracy, and to convince the employees of the positive aspects of education. The staff members of Destiny Reflection, with the support of volunteers and interns, have created a resource bank for the education program.
Sukanya Home Project
Sukanya is one of the government shelter homes in Kolkata for girls who have been rescued from a variety of distressed situations. Destiny Reflection has built a relationship with the shelter home and sends volunteers to lead arts and crafts programs for the girls. We started with 20 girls, and now have almost 30, with even more wanting to join the program.
