Social WorkSocial work

Various social initiatives have been undertaken over the last years:

  • There is an “income generating project” for women who learn to make traditional embroidery work (zardosi, gold and silver thread work) to preserve the skills and to promote the quality of the traditional embroidery culture. The aim is to enhance the position of the women by offering them opportunities to earn additional income. In February 2016 a shop opened where the products of this project are sold. Also handicrafts of others can be sold here.

  • Lessons in traditional calligraphy are offered so as to maintain this art and to interest young people in it.

  • Financial support is given in emergency situations such as illness, loss of accommodaton or family problems. 

  • There used to be an “informal school”, mainly for the poor children in the neighborhood. In 2016 this school has been transformed into a centre for tutoring, since there are several new formal schools in the area.
