SHWWAS’s Success Story
SWASTIK HANDICRAFT WOMEN WELFARE ASSOCIATION (SAMITI) (SHWWAS) - our aim is to support economically less-privileged women from rural areas and urban slums as well as revive traditional art and handicrafts by training and encouraging budding artisans through our Skill Development Programs.
At SHWWAS, we conduct free skill development workshops on hand embroidery, painting methods such as Madhubani and Warli, basic stitching, and creating home decors, handcrafted jewelry, bags, hand-painted greeting cards, and so on.
Livelihood Generation Program: Sales proceeds of our carefully crafted products ensure a steady source of income for the women involved. As training and support to more and more women, we hope to better the lives of multitudes of families, as empowering a woman means empowering a family.
Numerous lives have been touched and impacted year on year through SHWWAS, aspiring to create a more employable workforce and improve skills of youth and women that will enhance their earning potential.
The focus of these programs is to improve the earning potential of our aspirants through skill building and empowerment socio-economic initiatives focusing on three key areas of development LIKE Women Empowerment And Livelihood, Health, Education
- Establishing mechanisms that promote women’s participation in community and social activities
- Facilitating the fulfillment of women’s potential through education, skill development, and employment
- Discouraging discriminatory practices against women
- Convincing women to move beyond traditional occupations as a source of living
Enhancing employable skills and soft skills development in a holistic manner developing key skill sets for employability is what these sustainable training programs focus on. Individuals from financially challenged communities enroll and are trained in collaboration with reputed technical and knowledge partners, to become self-dependent and improve their standards of living to ensure sustainability.
The empowerment & autonomy of women and the enhancement of their social, health, political, and economic conditions is an extremely vital end in itself. It is the framework for the achievement of sustainable development. The power equations that obstruct women’s realization of healthy and fulfilling lives function across different levels of society, from very personal to the highly public. Accomplishing transformation needs policy and programme initiatives that would enhance women’s access to secure livelihoods & economic resources, lessen their extreme responsibilities with regard to housework, eradicate legal obstacles to their participation in public life, and increase social awareness through effective programmes of education and mass communication.
Empowering women would significantly benefit business. There would be a change in corporate values that would have an impact on business operations, revenue growth, and brand equity.
