Belgaum LEADer Helps 50 Women and Children Through Entrepreneurship

Posted on Saturday, February 15, 2014 by LEAD

GIT Belgaum LEADer Ashika Jain wanted to find a lasting solution for helping poor women and their children.  The mothers clearly needed money so that they could send their children to school, but they needed a sustainable income. Ashika decided that entrepreneurship was the answer.  Ashika purchased the raw materials and taught 50 women how to make stationary products such as files, notepads and notebooks.  Ashika then sold the books and saved a percentage of the profits towards funding the education of the women's children.  Ashika's social entrepreneurship initiative not only helped send these children to school but it also helped their mothers gain skills and employment experience so that they can continue working to help their children in the future. 

Ashika's project was showcased at Yuva Summit 2014.
