Save the Children India works for women’s empowerment in slum communities across Mumbai. Our classes teach women a combination of life skills, literacy and vocational skills, thus equipping them with various market skills and the ability to be independent earning members of their family.
Save the Children India provides livelihood training for young girls who have dropped out of school. This makes them socially and economically independent. Entrepreneurship training is also given to the young girls aiming for self-employment for financial stability in the future.
Vocational training classes operate through 18 batches in 9 centres across Mumbai and have touched the lives of thousands of women so far. Since its inception in 1992, over 6000 beneficiaries are trained in vocational skills and have now become earning members of the family.
Our aim for the year 2013-2014: To train 1000 beneficiaries in various vocational skills. We have successfully achieved this and currently we are reaching out to 1116 beneficiaries through our vocational training interventions.
