Mahila Arthik Vikas Maha Madal (MAVIM) Project, in a collaborative effort with Tisser India, conducted skill development training programs in tailoring in the community stitching center in Nagpur, Maharashtra. It also developed market linkage opportunities for products produced by women artisans.
During the course of the project, mobilization of 50 women took place where the infrastructure, training hours and raw materials were facilitated by MAVIM. By the end of the project, women earned stipend for a skill they acquired, received certification and created products.
Such project impacts the sustenance of women in rural communities who come from disadvantaged communities. They become empowered not just by finances but by the network, the vocational training, and more opportunities they create for themselves.
