BIGGER THAN LIFE : Women Empowerment
The project was launched on 2nd of July 2016 when two jewellery design professionals volunteered to teach artificial jewellery making to the Bandstand community women in order to empower them and make them self sustainable. So the women, including widows and single mothers, came together under one roof and started learning jewellery making. This not gave them confidence but also the joy to interact with friends from their own community.
The profit from the sale of the jewellery goes to the women thus giving them the required extra income.
Our daily routine is so hectic that we don't get time for ourselves. I always desired to learn a new skill and I am so glad I got this opportunity. For the first time in my life I have spoken so much with my friends from the community", says Kusum, a single mother!
BIGGER THAN LIFE : Project Nazif
We launch our new Project 'Nazif' (In association with Enactus Jaihind College) which in Urdu means clean and tidy. It is a self sustainable project (making liquid hand soap) fully owned by our Gazdhar Bandh slum women. That means they are the CEO's, managers, manufacturers and sellers. What an amazing start to our year!
