About the Campaign
With women constituting 48% of the population in India, there is an acute need to build & promote entrepreneurial skills among them so as to make them self-reliant. Yuva Bengaluru addresses the issue by supporting Skill Training in Sewing for deprived women. This project will equip 60 women with competent sewing skills.
Despite having the potential, women are confined to household chores with little or no opportunity for productive employment. Women can be the most powerful instrument in bringing about a desired change in the society and economy. Empowerment of women leads to empowering the family, the community and ultimately the Nation as a whole. This project aims to tackle this issue.
The economic self-reliance will help women attain confidence & courage to lead their lives. Yuva Bengaluru will support women who want to start sewing business by providing a sewing machine after their course. This will also help them support their families financially.
The project will empower women to build their own self-sustaining sewing business. Having acquired the skills and means of becoming self-employed, women will no longer fall into a trap of human exploitation. They will be able to come out of their debt trap and vicious cycle of poverty and work towards a promising future for themselves and their families, thereby creating a long-term multiplier effect.
