Project Vidya- Getting people a sustainable living

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Project Vidya aims to facilitate women and youth empowerment through teaching skills for having a sustainable livelihood. We do this by providing computer facilities and labs, libraries equipped with good academic and non – academic literature, Silai Centres with machines and material, and Handicrafts production training and supplies, along with teachers in all areas to guide them properly.

SILAI (STITCHING) CENTRES:

  • Setting free silai (tailoring) centres in rural areas with experienced teachers from this field
  • Certifying the ladies on completion of their tailoring course so that they can use their learnt skills and independently earn themselves a living
  • Sessions and workshops for women on life skills, vocational training, soft skills, self-defence, capacity building along with counselling sessions and wellness programs are also conducted
  • Women are also aided and encouraged in the formation of their self-help groups and cooperative societies
  • Helping women in starting their own livelihood and assisting them in getting employed
  • Fabric distributions
  • Donating stitching machines

 

HANDICRAFTS - PRODUCTION AND SALES:

  • We teach women to use their Indian sklls to make cultural handicrats that can be sold for a price in the markets aroun the globe
  • We provide the materials and machines, and the women enjoy making new things 
  • The products are then sold and all revenue generated is used in sustaining this project further by paying women for their work, and by providing more materials and getting more women on board.
  • This is one of our fastest growing initiatives.

 

COMPUTER LABS:

  • Setting up free-of-cost computer labs along with experienced educators in the field of IT
  • Conducting free computer classes
  • All computers are equipped with software that fulfils the threshold of a basic tech foundation
  • Providing free, but supervised access, to internet and the world of technology
  • Providing basic digital services to those who need them but can’t afford

 

LIBRARIES:

  • An initiative to nurture reading habits and skills in children and adults of all age groups from the underprivileged and remote areas
  • Setting up free libraries in areas where such facilities don’t exist
  • Books, school bags and stationary donations
  • Variety of books from literature in Hindi & English to Maths, Science, Arts, Computers, language learning, reference books, magazines, newspapers, encyclopaedias, novels, story books and from comedy to biographies and books on life & psychology across all ages
