Project Description

Economic security is the ability of individuals, households or communities to cover their essential needs sustainably and with dignity. Ekta Shakti Foundation under its Life-Skills Program conceptualized this vocational training program in the year 2006. The initiative of Radhika Skill Development Centre became functional in the year 2007 in Matiala, Delhi, to challenge the socio-economic inequalities of the region and enable women and girls to walk towards a goal of self-reliance.
The primary objective of the Radhika Skill Development Centre was to create employment opportunities for disadvantaged adolescent girls and women, especially women widowed at an early age, who saw no support in society. The program offers certificate courses in cutting, tailoring, sewing and embroidery for employability and better opportunities.
Beneficiaries are selected through the outreach program by the team. Families in need are identified during field visits, enquiring with the local community and via direct requests. The shortlisted candidates, based on their attitude, approach, education levels, learning capabilities, background and socio-economic conditions are enrolled for this program. The Certificate Course offered is of six months and 12 months based on the need and requirement of the candidate. Batches of 30-40 girls/ women are trained in two sessions carried out as per course duration selected. The organization liaisons with local boutiques, small scale setups and training institutes to strengthen placement opportunities for the trained women and girls.
Apart from imparting training, the center also serves as a social platform to spread general awareness about health, hygiene and gender issues.
