About the ProjectWhen more and more women are sharing the economic responsibility of the home, the focus shifts to helping them move towards self-empowerment and economic sufficiency through skill development. We aspire to help the women by giving them opportunities to provide for themselves and their families, a better quality of life. It is well known that women invest their income in their families' well being, and thus helping women can indirectly help their entire families. Volunteers and interns perform vocational training classes in English teaching, fashion designing, Tailoring, beauty parlor etc. Volunteers introduce newer and dynamic programmes to make women contributing members of society.
