Bollu Sravanthi is the elder daughter of the Bollu Bheemayya and Rajamani. Sravanthi has two  sisters and one brother. She has completed her SSC in the year 2004 and scored good marks. She thought to continue her education but the family’s income is not sufficient to send her for higher education. Her father is a weaver. As  he cannot get more work in this area, he  went to Bheemandi for job. They are staying with her grandparent’s house. Her mother is a labour  and she has to feed entire  family including  grandparents. After stopping her  education, she started  beedi rolling and earning about Rs 500 per month and supplementing the income to the family by  facing lot health hazards by doing beedi rolling  work. The mother of Sravanthi said that it is a compulsory for all the girls in the area/ district to roll beedis, other wise no one will marry the girls if they don’t roll beedis. The more they roll and earn more they get selected  faster for marriage. But no one cares or thinks about the health hazard of the girls. When sahara started VTC with the support of  Concern India Foundation-, she came and joined the course.  We have given the admission to the candidates those who are working in the beedi industry after thorough counseling. Our staff has met her parents and grandparents to create awareness on this health hazard ness in beedi rolling and asked them to send the girl regularly to the center. She has completed her one-year course and started stitching clothes at her home to near and dear ones in the beginning and picked up the quality in stitching. Now, she has  brought a second hand machine and running  a tailoring shop in her own house.  Now she is earning Rs. 1000 pm  as additional income through tailoring work. She is approaching her teachers, if she has  any doubt while stitching. Teachers are also helping this girl by giving job work of hemming, stitching falls etc. But her grandmother is not satisfied with the tailoring work. She expressed her view as if she does not want to do the beedi rolling, they  have to pay  more  money as dowry. It is a custom in this society that a girl child should learn the beedi rolling for the family. Now, has changed  it by making an alternative income by doing tailoring work which  protects their health by not doing beedi rolling.
