In August, 2021 Anand Ashram launched a new social service in its leap towards women empowerment. The sewa is named “Swa-Shakti” meaning self-power. This is aimed at generating self-employment amongst needy women. Under this service, needy women are being trained in Tailoring, Making Paper Bags, Best out of Waste and the related skills. For this, a Training Centre at Village Undera has been started.
In a pleasantly welcome move to support Anand Ashram in this sewa, Reliance Industries Limited (Vadodara Manufacturing Division) sponsored some sewing machines. Undera Gram Panchayat provided their unused premises at Undera Village for starting this Training Centre. Koshambh Multitred Limited came forward with supporting the project in many ways including providing the necessary clothing. A voluntary organisation IOCL’s Working Womens’ In Public Sector (WIPS) also are providing support in training the needy women.
Team Swa-Shakti : 1. Shri Sanjeev Ratti, Trustee in charge 2. Ms. Rekha Sharma, Chairperson 3. Ms.Harshida Patel, Co-chairperson.
As on today, more than 80 underprivileged women are undergoing training at this Training Centre at Village Undera.
Anand Ashram is thankful to Reliance Industries Limited Vadodara Manufacturing Division. Reliance Foundation also sent their CSR Head Ms Suman Chaudhary to grace the launching. We are thankful to Shri Rajesh Ahuja of Koshambh Multitred too for his unstinted support to Anand Ashram.
