Project: Women Empowerment

Shubada wanted to give opportunities to rural women. She first approached housewives and found that they were interested in learning about preparing gift articles and handicraft. She brought a resource person from another village to conduct a workshop on embroidery and making gift articles for a fixed entrance fee of  Rs. 40. 10 women benefited from attending and are now preparing such gift articles at home.    

One of the biggest challenges was time, since it was areca-nut harvest time and the women were often busy working in the field.
