"Samridhi" is our endeavour which was started with the objective of empowering women and leading them towards becoming self-reliant and independent individuals. To reach gender parity, a Vocational Training Center was established by the foundation in the slum areas of Nihal Vihar in Delhi. Young women from the weaker sections of society are given formal training of tailoring, stitching and embroidery.
Apart from the training, they receive a sewing machine and are professionally certified after they clear the examination. The courses are designed to make these women competent enough to find jobs for themselves and earn their livelihood. There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.
"The female labour force participation in India has fallen to 26% in 2018 from 36.7% in 2005, amid a lack of access to quality education and underlying social, economic barriers limiting the opportunities for women", says Deloitte report.
