We have come far from the time when females were meant to stay at home. They were neither given chance to enter educational institutions, nor they were allowed to work. In this era, women are no less than males and hence have entered every profession. The ratio of educated women have increased to a good level, but still there are many females, especially in rural areas or slum areas who are not educated enough to generate livelihood opportunities.
Seed CSR focuses on girl child as well as on women’s empowerment at the same time. This is why we initiate numerous CSR for women empowerment by joining hands with corporate companies. A deep thirst in all of us is much needed for women empowerment by equipping every disadvantaged woman with essential skills and providing livelihood generation opportunities. According to a survey, India has one of the lowest percentages of women employees and have very low Corporate Gender Gap ratio. This demands every company to come forward and invest more in for CSR initiatives in India. A huge ratio of disadvantaged women population is struggling hard for earning a good living for their family.
Here comes the main role of CSR firms. What we do for disadvantaged kids are, providing professional trainings for stitching, embroidery and other tailoring skills, dairy farming, papad making, pickle making, vada making, broom making, etc. The women are trained on how to handle market negotiation to get best price for their products. Seed CSR has trained professionals who identify the target zone, target women and ultimately train them to survive in tough environment. Our learning centers are a great place for women to enhance their skills and getting prepared for grabbing a good livelihood for themselves. The rural women are trained to start their own businesses and as a result of effective CSR initiative for women empowerment, many of our trainees are successfully earning a good livelihood for themselves and their family.
Come along! Let’s go ahead with more CSR initiatives in India.
