As the COVID19 crisis unfolded, and countries implemented large scale lockdowns. its impacted us also. To Combat Pandemic affect, Community need assessment conducted by Project Coordinators and Resource mobilizers. The brainstorming resulted financial support to start their businesses for sustainable income. Literacy India supported large number of women, youth in the communities to start business.

The youth and women in our society are in need of livelihood options. However, most often they do not have the means to get the required skill sets for the same, hence limiting their options. Our Karigari Program helps to improve the status of Women / Youth in the society by providing them with livelihood options through vocational training in the areas based on beneficiaries’ preferences and aptitude. Under Project Karigari support and the opportunities are created in the following manner: 

  • Step 1: Conduct a survey of the area and identify beneficiaries
  • Step 2: Assess the skills/ trainings that will be most beneficial to them
  • Step 3: Set up Support
  • Step 4: Invite beneficiaries for an orientation session
  • Step 5: Regular ongoing training until the completion of the program
  • Step 6: Workshop on business development and motivational sessions
  • Step 7: Support to set up business and provide ongoing support to sustain the business

What makes Karigari unique: The complete program is free of charge, with all equipment and raw material provided by Literacy India

-          The beneficiaries are exposed to real life workshops at the center where the work is happening

-          The involvement of Literacy India does not end with training. There are regular visits by coordinators to help the beneficiaries get jobs and start their own enterprise.
