Challenge

We train women who have to run large families on their own, with little or no help from their husbands. Training in beauty therapy provides ready employment to women in parlours and salons, as well as ad-hoc self-employment. A typical training takes six months, and thus we are able to very quickly empower such women with the skills necessary to seek employment.

Solution

Providing vocational training in beauty therapy is a costly affair. Currently, we have two trainers and almost negligible infrastructure. At the bare minimum, we need to buy two salon chairs, the necessary cosmetics for training purposes and other miscellaneous accessories, which are a variety of small instruments used in parlours. We estimate a total infrastructural cost of $ 2,500 to set up an effective training centre.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 50 women,which will create a better future for their families. They will be able to provide superior food, shelter and education to their kids, which will have a positive impact and societal betterment. Research has shown how empowering women in developing countries leads to superior long-term sustainable growth for their families. Hence, we strongly believe that the right vocational training for women is the path towards a brighter future for the underprivileged.
