Summary

ADD India will train 40 women with disabilities in Keeranur, Pudukottai district Tamil Nadu and in Siddlaghatta, Chikkaballapur district, Karnataka to set up their own group enterprise. This is subsequent to the skill training given to them in 2017, an outcome of facilitating regular forums for the women to share their experiences. ADD India continues to facilitate the platform for sharing for women with disabilities, while these 40 women now need to learn the ways of running an enterprise.

Challenge

Since 2017, ADD India has trained 50 women with disabilities in Keeranur, Pudukottai district TamilNadu and Siddlaghatta, Chikkaballapur district Karnataka skills for palm leaf craft and embroidery respectively. To accelerate their earning capacities, the women need training to successfully market the products they make and to build a group enterprise. This requires skills of production planning, accounts and marketing for which they require support of experts in these areas.

Solution

ADD India aims to offer 40 women with disabilities, who have been part of the livelihood program, 10-day training workshops that will empower them to think and function as an enterprise. The training will include product development, basic accounts and inventory keeping, planning production processes and responding to markets outside of their immediate environment.

Long-Term Impact

While this livelihood and enterprise building training can have a direct, positive bearing on women with disabilities by improving their financial security, it will also have a ripple effect on everyone around them: they will be able to contribute more to their children's education, afford better healthcare for their families, and be more effective participants in decision making at the family and community level.
