Silai Schools are a community based initiative of Usha International Limited. It is aimed at empowering women at the village level by imparting sewing skills and providing them sewing machines to earn their livelihood. Silai Schools are opened in non-electrified villages with a population of 2000. The programme reaches out to the most marginal communities and focuses on women who have an inclination towards sewing by imparting sewing skills to them and encouraging them to train other village women.
