Meet Renu, the Project WHY Sewing Teacher

Six years ago, when Renu Karotia joined the Project Why Sewing Circle, her husband had lost his job due to a work accident. Her family had lost their home and incurred huge debts.

After joining the Project WHY sewing class, she started taking small jobs at home. She then grew into the role of the sewing teacher and began taking pride in her students.

She is now paying back her debts and knows that she holds the key to her future. Her children study at the after-school support classes run by Project WHY.


Project WHY is a flagship program of Sri Ram Goburdhun Charitable Trust, that provides educational support to underprivileged children. This after-school support program goes beyond academics, to include life skills and all-around development.

Project WHY also runs vocational skill programs for women from underprivileged homes. Every year this nonprofit reaches out to 1200 children and 160 women.

Since 2007, over a 1000 women have been trained at the Project WHY Sewing Circle.


Today Renu, the sewing teacher, is looking at developing the skills of her students through a six-month programme. This will enable them to find employment in the garment industry.

Today they are looking at honing their skills further and for this they need the following:

Iron                                               1000/-

Interlocking machine                  4400/-

Pico machine                               5600/-

Ironing board                               2000/-

Cutting table                                4000/-

6-month salary for Renu            60,000/-

Total amount needed:                77,000/-

This would enable them to find employment in the garment industry where such skills are needed.

Renu is a woman who braved tough circumstances to not just earn a living, but also empower others to do the same. Support her journey through THIS FUNDRAISER.


Women are true agents of change and helping them find the means  to earn a livelihood would go a long way in transforming the lives of their families. At Project WHY, Renu and her students not only practice sewing but also learn to read and write. When women are empowered, domestic violence drops, and the next generations finds access to better education.
