January 2014 – March 2018
Budget: Total, Rs.740,150; 2017, Rs.189,900
The main objective of this project is to train poor women in skills and to help them find jobs or establish their own business.
ASS’s project has 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 and demand remains high, we have extended them for a year to train 30 additional women in these skills. The first 6-month programs have now been completed.
