Challenge

The women that we will be trained are mostly from Vrindavan and other neighboring villages. They come from rural backgrounds and 90% of them are below poverty line. They have limited source of income where most of the times, only one member of the family is making a very basic income which is not enough to maintain the household. Training these women becomes crucial in order to bring them at par with the wider competition around them. So that they are able to sell the product in the market.

Solution

We plan to provide professional training in sewing and embroidery to 15 interested girls and women from rural Vrindavan for the next 6 months starting from July, 2018. Once the training is complete, they will make the products with the initial help of a designer combining their sewing and embroidery skills. These products will then be marketed and made available for sale. We hope to see the project becoming self-sustainable within the next 2 years post training.

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, these women will emerge as leaders, take charge of their families with great confidence and empower other women in their communities. It will also ensure that the best qualified people can can get the jobs, rather than the best- qualified men, as this profession in Vrindavan is male-dominated. Therefore, this training and project will benefit their children, their families and their communities as a whole.
