Vocational Training for underprivileged girls and women

Women have always been marginalized and downgraded in Indian society. Due to the lack of specific implementation of plans, local communities especially women have remained outside the scope and benefits of government schemes and programmes. Women have not actively participated in their own emancipation due to their lack of economic independence and illiteracy. There is a need to address this issue by raising the status of women. We are trying to do this by running training programmes for the empowerment of women and by establishing centers.

So far, we have established 3 vocational training centers for women where they are trained in  and as Artisan , Batik, tailoring, handcraft and carpentry.

  • Vocational Training Center, Jharkhali

    Training in Carpentry, handcraft and tailoring are imparted to women only. There are 4 trainees in carpentry and handcraft and one instructor. It runs 5 days in a week –Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.

    In tailoring section there are 5 trainees and one instructor who teaches once a week presently.

  • Vocational Training Center, Salkia..


    There were 23 trainees in tailoring training, 10 trainees left without completing the course. Thirteen appeared for the exam, but only 10 were successful and they were awarded certificates. Eighteen new trainees have admitted for session January to December 2012.



    In Batik training, 6 trainees successfully completed the course and they were awarded certificates. The training imparted in this department empowers the trainees in the days to come to be self-dependent and self-reliant by engaging themselves to income generation activities which is the aim of this department.


    Women Artisans Group

    On 1st September of 2011 we  started a project in Anand Bhavan Training Center by a group of artisans women led by esteemed contribution of Mr. Sebastián Alcalá, our supporter and new friend. In Howrah City  we have many poor and needy women who are un-educated . So many married and unmarried girls are here who really need the moral and financial support.

    Our aim is to develop human potential and create sustainability for the self-reliant girls and women by arranging vocational trainin

    g courses. Embroidery works, fabric painting, fabric dying are some of the topics in our course.We started with embroidery course, and later on included batik.

    We are putting every effort to develop this training center.
