Challenge

Women Empowerment Skills aim to achieve, create and contribute to Improved employment / self employment opportunities for young girls and women between the age of 18 to 24 years in the remote villages and slums in Andhra Pradesh, India.

Solution

The teenage Girls between 18 to 30 years from disadvantaged communities face barriers in joining the formal economy -- lack of quality education, skills, social confidence, communication, language and cultural problems and also parental pressure to marry early and keep house, to community pressure to only take 'respectable jobs' and limitations on being allowed to travel 'too far' from the family.

Long-Term Impact

Learning skills and talents in tailoring to make new model dresses to sell them from house to house and shop to shop to earn sufficient Income to meet pressing needs of their family and educate their children and mainly not depending on others in the community and donors for years. And also, some of the Income will use for social cause at their villages to make a difference.
