A woman empowerment mission to upskill for self employment
ONE SEWING MACHINE. ONE FAMILY.
To make a family’s life sustainable through upskilling for self employment, IIP Foundation has sorted a simple and doable project to provide motorised sewing machines for selected women. The pilot project has proved to be successful which we did with 100 women who skilled themselves and started operating sewing garments and earning Rs.8000 to 12000 per month. Though not so literate, these women are very hands on and full of determination for running their households expenses.
Now, IIP Foundation is delighted to announce to empower a further lot of a hundred women and will purchased 1000 sewing machines to strengthen Hon’ble Prime Minister’s mission of #Atmanirbhar_Bharat.
Your small contributions will be of immense help for them.
