Empowering women with livelihood skills and opportunities as a step towards creating income security for marginalised households is a core intervention of KHUSHII’s community development programme.
Recently, KHUSHII helped a group of women, who are being skilled in tailoring at its Vocational Training Centre, Bhiwadi, bag an order for producing 5,000 pieces of cloth bags – providing an impetus to their journey towards self-reliance. The order was placed by Federal-Mogul Powertrain as part of their sustainability initiative and meeting the company’s commitment to supporting vulnerable communities worldwide.
Although they did not have any experience of fulfilling such a large order, the women took up the challenge with enthusiasm. KHUSHII procured the raw materials and trained the women in producing bags of a standardised shape and size, which were all delivered in time. The income generated from this activity helped the women make a significant contribution to the financial stability of their families and the experience has boosted their confidence to take up similar work in future too.
KHUSHII provides vocational skills to women and young girls from marginalized families to enhance their employability and financial independence. Your support will help us sustain our endeavour and ensure a better future to families in need.
