Several teenage girls drop out of high schools due to financial constraints and end up working as temporary farm labors, sweepers, and manual scavengers. Lack of vocational skills and prior experience further leads to economic marginalization.
Kreate Welfare and Empowerment Foundation offers free tailoring and stitching courses across various locations for women. In the training centers, students are trained by a qualified tailoring professional.
The main objective of this initiative is to enhance the quality of life for these women by enhancing their skills and knowledge. The larger goal is to help them become economically self-sufficient and independent.
This will also alleviate poverty and help them support their families.
Due to the lack of financial independence and professional skills, most women have had limited decision-making power. The larger vision is to achieve full and productive employment including decent work for all individuals as per the mandate laid down by the United Nations within its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
