Challenge

Destitute Women are facing atrocities & harassment at work place. Due to lack of financial independence, they have no role in decision making. They are treated as second class citizens. They are working as labourers in market yard, cleaners in hospitals, private enterprises & engaged in beedi (tobaaco) making, a hazardous profession. They are socially & culturally ill-treated. They lack employable skills & sustainable and dignified livelihoods

Solution

This tailoring & embroidery project intends to create economic development of destitute women & break poverty. Tailoring & Embroidery training will provide self-employment at their homes, can give them a daily income and can enable them to buy necessary medicines and make them capable to pay school fee for their growing children. Investment in destitute women, is a proven path to reduce poverty. They are disadvantaged when it comes to employment, education, and work skills.

Long-Term Impact

The income of destitute women will be enhanced and they will be independent. They need not depend on any one else. With this skills training women will be self reliant and live happily. They earn Rs.3000/- per month. The economic development of women will increase and they participate in decision making process. They will teach these learnt skills to another destitute woman who are in needy position.
