Project Description

The Lotus Rescue Women Empowerment Project is based on the themes of women empowerment and rural livelihood. The entire project has been divided into two sections- The Women Literacy Program and The Nari Saksham Program. This project has 500 beneficiaries spread over our 13 centres in Sundarbans, Kolkata, Newtown, Bongaon, Chanda, Shyamnagar, Tetulia, Panpur, Dangal, Shyamnagar, Khardah and Narayanpur.

The Women Literacy Program imparts free elementary education, spoken English, adult literacy, financial and digital literacy and yoga classes along with free health camps and psychological counselling. 

The Nari Saksham Program provides free vocational training to the women so that they become financially independent, self-sustainable and are able to look after their families well. We offer free beautician, bamboo-work, embroidery and tailoring, patachitra and nan-kathies making, snacks making, incense sticks making, menstrual hygiene product making and martial arts classes. The products that they make after attending these courses are sold off at Lotus Stores, various exhibitions, haats and their income is generated from there.
