Empowering women with skills is the key to building a better future. Not only do women act as a path to success but women are a great factor for the economic growth, social development and environmental sustainability.
Mother Helpage has for many years and continues to keep working on the Skills and Development to empower Women. The initiative was to provide access to skills for women, especially orphans and widows, helping them to live with dignity and more importantly become confident and self dependent.
Our aim is to empower Women by providing them with all the necessary perquisites to succeed in life; achieved by providing raw material, machinery and instructors so that they can gain skills, a reputable qualification in order to earn a respectable livelihood.
Mother Helpage as a humanitarian organisation to date has provided training to hundreds of girls residing in the valley and most of them have started their own livelihood projects by means of which they are supporting their families.
Initially the Skill Development initiative began in the district Anantnag (J&K) with the motive to provide the training to the girls who are under-privileged, but very much passionate to gain the skills and be self reliant. With the time the project expanded, allowing Mother Helpage to start to provide training in batches on half yearly basis. Moreover the organisation further expanded the project by setting up centres in remote areas in order to make the Women self reliant from all corners of the society.
This programme is one of the great initiatives because not only are we able to provide the training to the under-skilled, but we are able to create awareness in the communities about the importance of Skills & Development that acts as a main pillar for growth and success in every nation.
