Tiger Widow Textiles

The Tiger Widows Organisation provides families with alternative incomes and livelihoods so that they can stay out of the Sundarbans Tiger Reserve in the Bay of Bengal. 

Men are often attacked and killed by tigers when they go fishing, collecting firewood, fruit, honey etc. The widows and their families are then left to fend for themselves. The people who live there are very poor, marginalised and destitute.

 The Rotary Club of Dublin Fingal has supported a skills based training programme for the women with the following objectives:

  • To conduct training on clothes and cotton mask making with 30 Self-help-group women.
  • To start production process of cotton made mask immediately after completed short term training program.
  • To explore marketing opportunity: Local and well as institutional.
  • Increase sustainable livelihood opportunities among the skilled trained women workforce.

The programme is well underway and the attached pictures show the training in action.
