Rukmini AC and Lalitha AC are twin sisters from the outskirts of Kodungallur, Kerala. Both the sisters are physically challenged and are unable to walk properly. There were times when Rukmini and Lalitha were finding it difficult to earn for their living. The situation changed when they started as helpers at the “Anganwadi” and then moved to our training centre for learning the procedure of weaving products from screw pine fibres as a part time. They now are working with our centre fulltime. Now, both Rukmini and Lalitha are earning their living through screw pine fibres production.
