Vocational Skill Training and Better Childcare for Musahar Women in Bihar

Akhil Gramin Yuva Vikas Samiti (AGYVS), Muzaffarpur, Bihar

Contact: Mr. Subodh Kumar Pandey

Dates: July 2021 – September 2024

Total Budget: Rs. 11,56,300

2022 Budget: Rs. 4, 14,100

During the first year of this project, 40 poor Musahar women were trained in making Bamboo Products and another set of 40 Musahar women were trained in making Hosiery Products (20 women in each skill for 6 months at a time). There is a high demand for these products in the cities nearby. AGYVS was able to link each of these women to a local organization Jeevika and local banks to get small loans of Rs. 10, 000 for each to buy raw materials for products. AGYVS is also providing marketing support through collaboration with other local organizations. Each of these women is able to earn much more money after training.

As a complement to the above skill training of the women, 100 children below the age of 2 years, of poor working women were provided basic health care and some nutrition support. The mothers of these children were also educated about better childcare practices.
