Mahatma Gandhi once stated that the position of women in the society is an index of its civilization. “Train a man and you train an individual, Train a woman and you build a nation”.
The SHGs (Self Help Groups) are the major source of inspiration and self-reliance for women’s welfare. In an attempt to uplift the women, Shunya se Shikhar has been instituted for making a significant number of Self Help Groups self-reliant by providing them with the required training, skilling, capacity building and a sustained marketplace. Thereby ensuring a sustainable livelihood for the women and making them self-reliant and financially independent.
Close to 300 women are being provided training in sectors such as handicrafts, handloom, beauty & wellness, etc.
Along with the training the required interventions are being undertaken such as credit linkage, design & raw material interventions, training on the right packaging, marketing linkages are being established in order to provide a sustained livelihood to the groups and individual women, thereby making them self-reliant.
