Sweet-natured Kamakshi is a quiet one, often to be found reading in a corner at break times or otherwise minding her own business. But she definitely doesn’t escape our notice and we are really happy to award her the jacobs well employee of the month certificate for July 2013!
After completing a tailoring course through the Oasis ‘Learning and Livelihoods’ programme, Kamakshi first joined the jacobs well unit in Bangalore in 2010. Though she stayed with us for some time, Kamakshi found the stitching work very difficult at this point and took some time out to explore other opportunities. We were pleased to welcome her back in 2012, and since then she has been ironing, running shopping errands, helping with buttonholes, overlocking and cutting work as well as checking and packing final items before they are dispatched to clients.
Kamakshi has recently become interested in working on the sewing machines and is really taking initiative and responsibility for her own learning. We’re excited to see her tailoring skills progress and we’re actively looking for somebody to take over her current responsibilities so she can spend more time at the machine. She’ll be a hard act to follow though!
Thank you for your continued hard work, Kamakshi!
