This International Women’s History Month, Tripura Foundation aims to improve the economic status of women, girls, and their families by providing educational training and skills development. With the new skills that they obtain, women and girls are able to get jobs and even better, establish their own business.
The intention of training women and girls in this way is to empower them to improve their socio-economic status. With the help of sewing machines, women can become entrepreneurs, while earning an income and leading more safe and secure lives. With the money they earn, they will be able to send their children to school and sustain their families.
Our special Women’s Sewing Training program has kicked off the month with instruction for girls and will expand to training adult women on March 8, 2021, International Women’s Day. The framework for this program is to motivate rural girls and women while aiming to develop leadership and encourage a grassroots entrepreneurial spirit within the community. The motivation for programs like this is to inspire youth to set up their own production and servicing enterprises in their own rural areas, as well as ignite a passion for learning new and modern techniques so that they may adapt them for what works best for them and their communities as a whole.
This month, we celebrate International Women’s Day and acknowledge the hard-working single moms and their daughters who are beating the odds. Together, we can empower young girls to know their worth and strive to accomplish even their biggest dreams.
