Trainings for young disadvantaged girls and operation of a post-production unit and a shop with SAATH – Project 022

026

Project 022 / 2019 – 2023

SAATH-01

The project supports young women that find themselves in vulnerable situations. With a 6 month long sewing training and various other workshops, SAATH tries to make these young women independent again in giving them the necessary skills to become autonomous in their own communities, financially stable and giving them an active role in taking decisions.

 

The majority of the women return to their communities after completion of the training but some of them continue working in the post production unit of SAATH. They receive the orders of the shop and produce them at their own places. The products sold enable SAATH to raise fund, which will be put in a bank with the goal of becoming financially independent, without the help of exterior donors.

 

In 2017, SAATH opened its first selling point for displaying the products of the young women and sell them on the local market as well as internationally.

 

With the help of the project, a second shop could be opened, that reaches a different tranche of customers. This makes it possible to train more beneficiaries and increase the stock of funds so that the organization will be autonomous after the period of 5 years.
