Women Empowerment at Jamshete, Dahanu - CSR Project


Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Over the years women have suffered a lot through the years at the hands of men. In earlier centuries, they were treated as almost non-existent. As the times evolved, women realized their power. There on began the revolution for women empowerment. At RCMM we believe in equality of gender and our main thrust is to go into the interiors of Maharashtra and help the women folk to earn their livelihood.
RCMM initiated under the Integrated Village Development Plan in Jamshete, to train Adivasiwomen skills of stitching with help of NRB CSR funding and The AasthaFoundation active locally. To start with 4 sewing machines were set up at Village Community Centre, where around 30-40 women were trained. They are now making bags, also as an initiative to removing plastic use. The materials for the bags are purchased in wholesale. Each woman is able to stich 75 bags with in 8 to 10 hours.
With the time, more and more women have expressed their desire to learn the stitching and be a part of the group. RCMM has procured 7 more machines to fulfill the need. The AasthaFoundation expects to produce around 22,500 bags per month. Each women member makes around 75 bags per day, giving her an income of Rs.300 per day.
This kind of projects gives immense satisfaction to RCMM members. We are able to make some one’s life truly better!!
