Every woman to have an equal opportunity to lead an empowered life.
To provide market oriented skills and build confidence in women from economically weaker families
Project AVANTI (Women Skill Development Program) was developed in 2010 with an aim to provide skills and build confidence of women from economically weaker families, thereby leading to their economic and social independence. Having a vision for holistic advancement of a woman, AVANTI has prepared an integrated approach for support through ‘TRAIN – TRANSFORM – TRIUMPH’:
Before initiation of the project, a detailed need assessment and area mapping will be carried out in and around the target location, this data will form the baseline for the long-term project planning. The Women Skill Development Center will conduct 3-month training program for women from financially constrained families. The selected women beneficiaries can choose to be trained in vocations including but not limited to tailoring, embroidery, bag making, beautician and the like.
The training shall be carried out daily by experienced faculty as appointed by Nirmaan. The selected women beneficiaries will undergo training daily from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm. After the completion of the training program, the beneficiaries will be assessed by a third-party examination and would be provided with certificates after successful completion of training.
Apart from the regular training program, the women would be trained on various income generation programs and value addition skills, by organizing different workshops and learning sessions.
