Economic Empowerment through Skill Development.
Economic empowerment is a crucial component of women’s empowerment, and one that can be achieved in rural India through vocational training and skill development initiatives. Ensuring that women play a more active role in contributing to the economy is important not only because of the benefits to the country and community, but to individuals and families as well. Financial independence will give women the strength and courage to stand on their own two feet. Their experience of financial independence will also impress upon them the importance of socio‐economic and political rights, giving them the confidence to step forth and demand equal rights.
Under Project Swayam, we will:
- Implement vocational training programmes that are holistic in nature, and include a range of subjects and topics that ensure employability of beneficiaries.
- Liaise with major industries to tailor‐make content for vocational training programmes according to the demands of local job markets to ensure employment opportunities for beneficiaries.
- Liaise with the local administration to create greater awareness of the vocational training initiatives of the government.
- Implement thorough and intensive entrepreneurship training programmes for women.
