COVID-19 has hit us hard as many lost their loved ones due to the dreaded virus and with lockdown imposed in the country from time to time to curb the COVID-19 spread the economy was affected as shops and businesses were closed due to which many lost their jobs.
Even before COVID-19 womenâ€™s financial dependence has mostly been a cause of concern and a reason for their exploitation. The only solution to this problem is womenâ€™s empowerment. An empowered woman will be able to make the right choices, educate her children and also improve the economic status of her family.
â€˜CARING HANDSâ€™ an initiative of KAPAI FOUNDATION, is passionate about womenâ€™s empowerment and believe that the skill enhancement of women is essential in providing the much-needed social and financial stability.
CARING HANDS is providing proper vocational training to needy women through tailoring, making candles, snacks, pickles, and spice mixes, to name a few, and helping them to become financially free.
Speaking about the initiative Ritu Kapai informed that â€œcurrently there are more than 10 women who are a part of the training programme where we train them in various employment opportunities which will help them to become self-employed. So, the competence developed will establish their social security and economic libertyâ€. â€œWe help them with raw materials and also provide a platform to sell their final products. Our endeavor is to promote womenâ€™s financial independence. Letâ€™s Empower Womenâ€ she added.
