Aakansha Seva Sadan (ASS); Muzaffarpur, Bihar
Contact: Ms. Bandana Sharma
January 2014 – March 2018
Budget: Total, Rs.7,40,150
ASS’s project provided 6-month training programs in embroidery, tailoring, and beautician work to 270 poor women and adolescent girls (2 groups of 15 women per year for each skill) in the period 2014-17. As the tailoring and beautician programs were particularly successful, we extended them for a year to train 30 additional women in these skills. The beneficiaries are now largely self-employed in their chosen occupations.
