Kali Story

Kali came to study in Barli Development Institute for Rural Women (BDIRW) in early 2011 and successfully completed the six-month training. Now she is an established tailor in Alirajpur. Born in a tribal household in Alirajpur, in her childhood Kali was affected by the Polio virus and since then, she has been using a stick to walk - but her handicap has not dampened her spirits in any way. She has confidently set up her own tailoring shop in Alirajpur city haat (i.e. a local market) and is among the top earning tailors there.
