With a vision to promote entrepreneurship and empower the local women, Essar Foundation inaugurated a stitching centre in Salaya, Gujarat.
The Foundation through this initiative is supporting the stitching center by providing skills and creating new business opportunities. This will also provide the associated families with an alternative source of income, by establishing market linkages.
The inauguration was graced by the Jamnagar District Development Officer, Mr Ajay Kumar; Khambhalia Taluka Development Officer, Mr Boda; COO of Essar Bulk Terminal Salaya Capt Rajen Sachar; and Salaya Nagarpalika President Saleh Mohammad. The event saw the presence of over 60 enthusiastic women, keen to be a part of the initiative.
The stitching center at Salaya initially started as a small community program by the local Wagher Muslim Community Jamat, with the idea to provide skill development to the women without them having to leave their houses.
To add further value, the women will be provided exhaustive training sessions which will not only improve their skill sets but also their stitching precision. Alternatively, the center will be a potential platform for the overall development of women who will also be trained in several life skills such as basic literacy, personality development, accounts and business entrepreneurship, etc.
Essar is built on the spirit of entrepreneurship. The company promotes the same, by providing skills, creating new business opportunities and nurturing social development. Essar-supported entrepreneurs have, over the years, established businesses as contractors in construction, housekeeping and catering services.
