Hello dear friends, thanks for kind response from many of my friends, thing sounds good!! Hope it would be a very good beginning for a meaning full dialogue which may lead both of us towards a true collaboration.
I do work with the rural underprivileged women to facilitate the process of improvement in their life, so that they can combat the hunger and provide support to the families especially the children for food, nutrition health and education. The theme to make involved the rural women in fashion industries through developing their indigenous knowledge to modern skill and life skills. The women (mothers of the children studying in primary schools) produce the products where we provide the technical support for diversification and market linkage. The main production lines are fashion wear, fashion accessories, furnishing and home textile, and jute made products. They are 950 in number in the of Self-Help Groups where they have the full autonomy to operate and decision making. They raised capital (savings and investment) through weekly savings, and selling share among the members. They have the machines and equipment (garments) for two factories, one in urban and another in rural area. Apart from these they invested to government mutual fund also. In the rural areas the women producers joined home based farming project where they share the contributory fund (100% contributory by the government), in urban they are about to have another group registration to the government department where they will have allowances during the pregnancy and breast feeding period. Most importantly some of them now provide training for the external trainees in the government project as resource person. You are most welcome join in this combat against hunger to protect our children from being deprived.
