AU Udyogini (Enabling rural women with Sustainable Livelihoods & Agency)
This project focuses on providing self-employment opportunities to the women in rural areas. These women are trained in one or more skills that are primarily related to their immediate place of stay. The skill training is eventually amalgamated with lessons on multiple soft skills and business skills thus preparing them to be small scale entrepreneurs.Read MoreRead Less
- The Self Employment Training Centres for Women focuses on imparting skills based on local industries to help them be independent.
- The skills are carefully selected depending on the location of the centre as well as to encourage local production of goods & services.
- This focus on local products ensures that women start their own small enterprise which is sustainable in the long run.
- It also contributes to women’s empowerment in the kind of rural areas where women still struggle under the binds of patriarchy.
