This initiative is for the benefit of the poor and needy women & girls, ( widows, abused Women, tiger/crocodile victims unemployed women, and House Mothers) who live below the poverty line in backward/remote villages of Sundarban. The female workforce participation rate (WPR) in India stands at 31.8%, which is almost half of the male WPR at 73.2%. The majority of the workforce in India is in the informal sector. Low-income women workers in the informal sector, due to the irregular nature of work and little bargaining power, are amongst the most vulnerable groups in the Indian economy. The National Policy on Skill Development highlights that to improve the productivity of the economy, the participation of women in the labor force needs to be improved. We are providing training for the production and distribution of sanitary napkins to needy women to make them financially independent. We engaged dynamic women in the production of sanitary napkins and the distribution of pads.
Each sanitary napkin production cum distribution unit is designed in such a way that the beneficiaries will get livelihood support and the unit can be run in a no-profit-no-loss format so that the local needy women can collect sanitary pads at a lesser price (at least half the price of a leading brand of the same product) compare to the market. Thus more beneficiaries are motivated to use this hygiene product for their better hygiene. We are also providing tailoring training in remote areas of Sundarban. Learning skills and talents in tailoring to make new model dresses to sell them from house to house and shop to shop to earn sufficient Income to meet pressing needs of their family and educate
