Need Assessment & Problem Statement:
Lack of skills training opportunities’ among young women is a common issue. Often, due to socio norms and financial crisis, they are unable to undertake vocational and skill trainings in the expensive training centers.
House wife women depend on the traditional work like housekeeping, collecting fodder and fuel wood to cattle and to earn income. Some of them do casual labor work but it produce poor earning which is not sufficient to arrange meal twice daily. This impact on the health of women. These are the women from Underprivileged community they have not any skill and nor secure their livelihood.
However, due to lack of vocational training facilities and awareness, women never offered these techniques to create their micro enterprises in a profitable manner. Women mainly undertaking local workload to generate daily meal, and they never get the opportunity to explore other skills and markets beyond the existing one due to lack of skill and marketing support.
