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 training giving them various market skills as well as 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 independent and gives them the strength to be able to stand on their own feet one day. Entrepreneurship training is also given to the young girls aiming for self-employment for a profitable life in the future.
The vocational training classes operate in 14 centers across Mumbai, and Navi Mumbai & have touched the lives of thousands of women so far.(Since its inception in 1992, over 6000 beneficiaries are trained in vocational skills & have become earning members of the family & provide financial support .)
We are aiming to train 1500 beneficiaries in total in various vocational skills for the year 2013-2014
