Karunadeepa writes from Pune:
Sewing classes. Now more women and girls have started coming to us and are demanding a sewing class to teach punjabi dress, which is really great.
Livelihood. After the six years that BODHI has been supporting this program, the women have started some income generating activities so that they can sit at home and earn something.
Medical camps. Only 24 women attended the camp because they were held from 11.30am to 1.30pm. This was not a good time for the mothers as the water that comes through the pipe lines comes at different times in different areas and hence the women give priority to washing their clothes, cleaning and storing water as water comes for only few hours a day. And they do not have lots of pots to store water. Therefore few women turned up for this programme. Also, some women had been out doing some jobs for their living.

Making a start at making some money
2 new livelihood projects just starting for mothers, big sisters & others
Two new experimental livelihood projects are just beginning for the mothers, big sisters and other tribal women in Hadapsar (Gosavi Vasti) Pune. We don't know how they will go. We'll see. This is experimental; if it goes well, then we offer advanced classes and purchase used sewing machines for the women to use to make some money.
