Whether we acknowledge it or not, poverty is a grim reality of the Indian society.
Lack of technical or skilled education contributes in a major way to unemployment.
Poor women need to be empowered and trained in various skills to enable them to eke
out an honourable livelihood and run their families with dignity.
A number of governmental schemes and NGOs are striving hard to
provide self-employment to the deserving. Not to lag behind, the
Trust too has taken up this noble cause and encourages women to get trained in
vocational courses under the self-employment scheme. The Trust started a Tailoring School
in the year 2012 in Kalika Galli (backside of Goddess Annapurna Devi Temple). 60
women and girls students are being trained in batches in tailoring on a regular basis by 4
expert teachers. Eligible candidates who successfully complete the training
course are presented with a Sewing Machine as a God-Gift during their farewell party.
About 140 poor girls and women benefit from this scheme every year. Phone: 0542-.
Observing the positive response to this vocational course scheme, the Trust decided to extend the facilities to more number of women and girl students residing in other areas of Kashi. Hence, a second unit of Tailoring School was established at Luxa Road, Varanasi. 105 poor girls and women benefit from this scheme every year. Phone: 0542-2390246.
