Tailoring course to empower rural women
Every year, the CSR team arranges a one-year tailoring programme to enhance the skills of the women in Sikharpur, Rajarhat. The programme is designed to make the women more self-reliant and empowered. For 3 years the team has successfully taught these rural women about the nitty gritty of stitching and has encouraged them to earn a livelihood from it. Three women from each batch have been adjudged as best trainees and awarded with sewing machines as an incentive to start working instantly from the comfort of their homes. Presently, as the third batch is on the verge of completion, the CSR team is ready with 40 aspiring women enrolled for the next batch.
