A skill development program started for the women to help them earn an income that would empower them. They were taught basic and advanced sewing and tailoring, tie and die, block printing and crochet.
Bansuri supported this initiative from 2017 to 2019. We conducted training programs to emphasise excellence, reliability and commitment. We also carried out workshops for the women to create awareness about health, hygiene and parenting. Our program also focuses on financial management, overcoming personal barriers and prejudices, and building self-confidence.
The program was also introduced at Shanker Ki Dhaani, a neighbouring village.
