Fifty percent of the world population is women, which mean there is a huge scope of them playing an active role in economic growth and social prosperity. However, as a primary caretaker of the home, this often becomes a missed opportunity. But, the aspirations and dedication of this creative force of the society do not rest. A little hand holding and a flexible working model can make these homemakers an even greater contributor to the society. It can transform a homemaker to a Societymaker.
With this mission, Agrasar initiated its home based work model for women. With its commitment towards progressing with the community, the organization has designed this program specifically for migrants hailing from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa etc. and the underdeveloped areas of Gurgaon.
The initiative empowers the underprivileged women by providing skills training in tailoring to enable them to earn an income and support themselves and their families. A compelling focus is on capacity building in areas like financial literacy, health, hygiene and entrepreneurship development.
