India ranks 135 among 147 nations on women empowerment as per United Nation's Human Development Index, as reported in Human Development Report 2014. This index considers empowerment to be a factor of women’s economic participation as well as gender parity with men. Women’s economic participation is limited due to various reasons like domestic responsibilities, illiteracy, social norms and lack of employable skills.
By creating a community based model, where the women are skilled and employed within the community, Srujna is able to provide employment to thousands of women across India. We take the work to their doorstep and make it more accessible by bridging the market gap.

Being a housewife, it was tough for her to go out and work. So she started making bindis at her home to sell in the market. But her families extreme situations and low income made her take larger financial responsibilities, and she started working in Amul parlour. But the full time job with a small daughter was not possible for her. So she left the job and joined Srujnas program as a trainee. She quickly mastered the skills and graduated to be-come a trainer with Srujna. Srujna assigned her to a shelter home in Chembur, which houses rescued girls. Overcoming travel challenges, where she has to travel 5 hrs daily and communication barriers where most girls speak different dialects she has trained over 100 rescued girls in the shelter home.She is now a happy mother, as she can now support both her daughter’s education and a happy teacher as she can provide an opportunity for the rescued girls.
We envision a world where each woman has the resources and the abilities to lead a meaningful life. This can only happen when we, as a society, acknowledge the gender disparity and initiate concrete solutions for inclusive development. We know that when women are empowered, communities progress!
