Income-Generating Project for Rural and Urban Women
Empowering a woman is empowering a family. This project empowers local women to tackle poverty, improves education, and fights daily difficulties in their lives to bring a brighter future by accessing to income-generating work. Start-up funding would equip local textile craftsmen with the necessary items, who would then be hired to create clothes for sale to locals and outside the community.
More than 70% of girl children do not continue education after primary school. Girls stay at home, herd, get married, stay within the community, and repeat the cycle of poverty, poor health, and education. The major part of women’s work is sewing and making textile crafts. With lack of education and other technical skills and lack of business knowledge, their skills are very locally applied.
This project allows local women to apply their skills and talents at higher scale in local and outside market, offering an opportunity for local women to earn income for their families and enhance their skills. Local women will be the major participants (90%). in the first year, the project will employ 8 – 10 local women full-time while providing training to improve productivity and a brand and logo to market their businesses all with the support of Plan To Empower project managers. We provide necessary training, equipment, and materials in order to provide such beneficiary women for themselves and their family.
This pilot project will empower 100 women to develop tools necessary to launch successful businesses, generate income, send their children to school, & lift their families and communities out of poverty, enriching their quality of life and security.
This project will empower local women by providing income-generating works and create small-scale development projects in the communities with the profit made from the enterprise. In sum, this would be a self-sustaining source of income for the entire local community and cultural preserving project.
