When a woman grows the community grows” is an old proverb and holds true even today. The families of the community of Malviya Nagar, Indore are migrants from different villages. From the first day the family has to fight for survival. The family members are illiterate, marginalized, and financially unfortunate. The father in the family usually works as a laborer and on the other hand the mother takes the responsibility of the household chores.
To support the families financially, stay-at-home mothers want to use their time productively. These women are keen on acquiring skills, which can help them to earn their livelihood from working at home itself. Navyug Aarambh Education and Social Welfare Society promptly responded to this requirement by starting the project Kaushal. Under this project we provide the women of the community vocational training in the fields of stitching and weaving.
We enrolled 60 community women for a 6-month diploma course under Jan Shikshan Sansthan. The women were trained for stitching baby wears and blouses.
The project received a job work for summer coats, Modi jackets, and baby wear.
We took a step further and trained the women in the stitching and designing of designer salwar-kurta, blouses, lehengas, and western gowns.
A major breakthrough happened for Kaushal, we became the official manufacturers of the baby carriers and kids wear for the brand Klingaru.
In association with the Symbiotec Pharma Lab PVT. LTD., Indore, we are now teaching Cosmetology to young women.
Designed and exhibited the wedding trousseau packaging collection in 7 lifestyle exhibitions.
