CBM inaugurated a disability inclusive tailoring unit in Uttar Pradesh in July 2018. A part of CBM’s Parivarthan project, it will provide training on tailoring along with being a livelihood option for 28 women with disabilities. 

Parivarthan, a community based inclusive development project, provides skill development trainings for persons with disabilities and peers on sustainable livelihood and, after the successful completion of the training, supports them to set up livelihood facilities. It focuses strongly on the skill development of the participants as per their business plans and facilitates to bring together like-minded people towards establishing it as a livelihood. 

This particular tailoring unit is one such initiative within the Parivarthan project. It began with the provision of training in tailoring to 40 women among whom 28 are persons with disabilities. With the newly developed skillset, the women were able to receive tailoring orders from villagers, followed by institutions such as schools and wholesale garment producers. Considering their achievements, a tailoring unit was established as an additional support system. In addition to taking orders for tailoring from institutions, the women also provide tailoring training to young women from the community, which serves as a skill building opportunity for the youth and an extra income for the unit. CBM also collaborated with the Northern India Textile Research Association (NITRA) for providing technical guidance and training for the unit members towards setting up the unit and creating linkages with banks and other institutions. 

The Parivarthan project currently covers more than 4,000 persons with disabilities from the Gorakhpur and Mathura districts of Uttar Pradesh by providing skill development trainings in sustainable farming and off-farming livelihoods.
