In an event organized by Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave away sewing machines to five poor widows. These widows are supported by The Loomba Foundation’s project of empowering widows in Varanasi. The Foundation is providing a 2-months’ skills training certificate course in garment-stitching and a foot-operated sewing machine to 5000 widows.

The U.K based Loomba Foundation is a global NGO accredited by the United Nations that works exclusively for the upliftment of widows and their children. Since the inauguration of its India chapter by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister of India, in 1999, the Foundation has empowered several thousands of widows and educated their children across 29 states in India.
