Most rural areas in Asia, India included, have these characteristics, societies are impoverished, and women being the most dis-empowered people in the society have borne the heaviest brunt.
Working as a volunteer in India especially in women’s empowerment program gives you an opportunity to see firsthand the problems they go through in their day-to-day lives. You will also have an opportunity to participate in offering skills and knowledge which will provide a solution to this problem.
This project tackles problems of both awareness & affordability by investing funds to buy sewing machines, 3-6 months sewing and stitching sanitary health kit and selling at low cost and generating income of their own. It’s initially taking place in 18 rural villages of Sesurajapuram, a project location and its surrounding villages, in the district of Krishnagiri, Tamilnadu state, India (south). We also aim at not only 18 villages, but also at least 10 schools to give health awareness, training, and workshops and allow local adolescent girls in schools to learn about the importance of menstrual health & hygiene, including sanitary pads and managing their personal life and going to school regularly. At least 20 youth leaders out of 10 schools will be chosen from each school and 10 teachers’ trained as a mentor and will take part in a training session on health issues and business skills. They will be given stock of low-cost sanitary pads to promote and sell to local women in their slums. Also, during the training, the young mothers and adolescent school dropout girls will be trained to make Dresses, blouse, shirts, pants, Rexine bags; jute bag and cloth bag and beautician training by experts so that the women and girls get a sustainable income of their own by distribution of sanitary napkins to meet their daily livelihoods. Women will get an opportunity to get interest free loans to start their own self employment, microcredit and microfinance projects to earn their daily and monthly income to meet their basic needs such as health, education and livelihood. The women will also be recommended to access job opportunities in Garment Company to get monthly salaried jobs.
As a volunteer in India You will learn their culture including their language and customs; it is an eye-opening encounter that will change your worldview. However, no matter what kind of works are you doing in those projects, you will enjoy the whole time. Interested, please apply and reserve seats.
