Vishalakshi Women Empowerment Project
As a part of its endeavor to promote economically self reliant communities, The Art of Living started Women Empowerment programs for the rural women to provide them sustainable and alternate means of income. Rural women are trained in different skills like using jute to create utility products, stitching, cutting, embroidery, bead work and many other skills. The products are sold at various fairs and exhibitions and have been receiving support from corporate organizations as well. The rural women are imparted training in the preparation of the following items for sale.
- Jute, Cloth and Paper Bags
- Quilts and Handicraft items
- Decorative items
- Incense sticks
- Food and Consumable items
- Our women have been taught a new skill and are now also engaged in making sanitary napkins.
