    6. FUND VOCATIONAL SECTION PROJECTS

    Objective
    Produce candles in bulk and increase the efficiency and time for bulk orders for our vocational section.
    Project Details
    Currently the vocational section produces candles using moulds which is time consuming and prevents us from taking bulk orders. The machines we propose to buy are customised to make 40 candles at a time and also has inbuilt cooling system. This saves lot of manpower and time.
    No. of Machines required: 3 (For Different shapes of candles)
    Objective
    To train, empower and transform the lives of special people by developing a profitable model to produce and sell good value products made from fabrics woven by special people. To use the looms for therapeutic use for people with disabilities.
    Introduction
    From an occupational therapy perspective, weaving has all kinds of benefits in improving upper limb function, hand function, concentration, patience, work tolerance and so much more. It is being used all over the world as a means of occupational therapy to treat and rehabilitate people with disabilities and for engaging them. Many NGOs are adopting weaving as occupational therapy as well as a suitable vocation for special people. So WARDS started a weaving studio with a small 2 shaft Ashford Table Loom which has been modified to suit the needs of our children by a company called Shuttles and Needles, Chennai who are the authorised distributors for Ashford New Zealand. Shuttles and Needles trained a few of our staff at their studio at Chennai to weave fabric, make woollen scarves etc.
    Approximately 2m of cloth is woven per day on one loom. The cloth woven is being utilised by a designer to make various products like jackets, bags, etc.
    Number of looms to be purchased: 5 SAORI WX-60 looms
    Advantages of this loom:
    1. Designed for People with Disabilities
    2. Comes with a range of accessories for specific disabilities.
    3. Easy to train and weave.
    4. Faster Weaving than other looms.
