Empower women who are illiterate and discriminated by becoming their friend, teacher and advisor.

India is one of the fastest developing countries in the world, yet the country lags behind in gender equality. Poverty, social division and superstitious beliefs victimize thousands of women and young girls in India. Many of these women are both poor and illiterate. Through our micro-finance project, our main goal is to build self-reliance by developing skills in knitting, paper bag making and stitching. Located in the slums of Delhi, the project is helping the women to earn their livelihood through which they are also able to support their children's education.

The project is a unique chance to observe the process of how handmade paper bags are produced, stitched and tailored. In addition, volunteers can also participate in teaching at a nearby school which serves disadvantaged children. Generally, morning our volunteers teach these children and in the afternoon help in making these handmade items and learn about the women in India.

Your activities as a volunteer

As a volunteer, you will assist the rural women who are struggling to be self reliant by developing skills in knitting, paper bag making and stitching. You will import knowledge, skills, consciousness and confidence. Volunteers can also participate in teaching at a nearby school which serves disadvantaged children.

Skills required

Most of the placements seek committed individuals to help strengthen the projects and programs, so a willingness to learn and work is required. Having interest to work for the benefit of poor, marginalized, disadvantaged and vulnerable group and to the development of their skill development, knowledge and competence is very essential.

Project Location

Delhi: Delhi is one of the largest cities of India. It is also the capital of India. The city offers a fascinating amalgamation of old and the new north India with ancient temples and monuments mingling with posh shopping malls and international food chain. It's also a city where you can find glittering buildings next to a shanty town.
