The two Savitrimai Phule women empowerment centres of Utkarsh Global Foundation at Velachery and Perumbakkam are up against a steep target. Twenty-five thousand masks have to be handed over to the office of the Director General of Police in the city to be distributed to the staff.

Due to pandemic-related restrictions on the opening of vocational centres, for the last few months hundreds of women are stitching masks from their home. A vehicle ferries the stitched masks to the centres for sterilisation and packing.
