Tailoring & Beautician Program
Much has been said than done about Livelihood for women in India.
Vedanta Foundation through its project Vedanta
Sakhi aims to facilitate the critical concern of livelihood among the deprived women population in the country.
Nation wide network of centres extends support to the livelihood skill seeking women. The objective of these centres is to empower the women population especially from the deprived backgrounds with effective professional skills leading to appropriate livelihood opportunities.
These centres provide appropriate skill development training programmes in the high demand services such as Tailoring and Beautician. Both the services are not only high in demand but also offer time flexibility on one hand and the option to operate out of home on the other , most suitable for the support seeking women population.
The courses offered in Tailoring & Beautician, typically range anywhere between 3 – 6 months, providing the students adequate knowledge to facilitate livelihood opportunities at the end of the training programme.
Technically sound trainers help and motivate the students to understand the smallest but critical technical know how of the desired skill development programme. The students are also provided tips on kick starting their livelihood through self employment opportunities.
The foundation boasts of successfully training and providing livelihood opportunities to more than 1 Lac women across the country since its time of inception in the year 1997.
Going forward, Vedanta Foundation shall further strengthen its support to the women population for appropriate livelihood by maximizing its reach across the country as well as enhance the professional knowledge among the skilled livelihood seeking students.
A lot has been done for women empowerment in India since we achieved independence, but Indian women still have a long way to go if we want to call ourselves empowered.
India has seen a powerful woman prime minister and women chief ministers of the states. But the truth is that women are still helpless in Indian society. Many women are still living below the poverty line, have no access to education facilities, have minimum lifestyle and have zero financial independence.
The reasons for zero financial independence are many but the most important being the lack of skills and time constraints due to the traditional responsibility of household chores (e.g., cooking, fetching water, and looking after children) entrusted on the Indian women.
Vedanta Sakhi is a reflection of the company’s deep rooted belief in “equal partnership” among men & women in all aspects. Initiated in the year 1997, the project provides a platform for creating sustainable livelihood for the women population through appropriate livelihood skills training. The project is designed especially for those women who are compelled to live below poverty line due to tough circumstances of life.
Vedanta Foundation aims to support the cause of livelihood among the needy women population of the country by empowering them with skills offering livelihood opportunities.
The Foundation has aptly setup Sakhi training centres across the country to reach out to the needy women seeking a platform for developing skills offering them to livelihood opportunities.The Sakhi centres offers training in skills such as Tailoring, & Beautician keeping in mind the weak education background of the targeted women.
