Community Services | Women Empowerment
To encourage women's empowerment the Mission operates 72 tailoring and embroidery training centers in different parts of India. The courses give women, who oftentimes have few marketable skills, a method to obtain employment or create their own income.
This economic empowerment has many positive consequences, often leading to increased social capital for women. Otherwise the skill training may serve as a resource within the family.
Another initiative the Mission supports is primary education to illiterate women, provided under a special program, 'Project Upkar'. Villages having population of Tribals and Gypsies are the main target under this project.
The aim is to reach out to those sections of our society which are totally bereft of the modernization and development and living in isolated environments.
