In today’s world, where the opportunities are endless, and the potential for growth is enormous, it is easy to forget that there are still communities and individuals who are struggling to access the resources and skills they need to thrive.
That’s where Miles2Smile’s Taharat program comes to provide communities, especially women, with the skills and tools they need to build their confidence and create a better future for themselves and their families.
The program provides participants with access to a range of resources, including sewing machines, materials, and other equipment, which they can use to hone their talents and develop new skills. In addition, the Taharat program offers financial literacy training and support, helping participants to develop their financial management skills, as well as providing them with guidance on how to form SHGs, and access government loans to start their own businesses.
Perhaps the most inspiring aspect of the Taharat program is how it has influenced the lives of the women & girls who took part in it, especially those residing in the Shiv Vihar North East Delhi area affected by the riots. For many of these women, the program has provided them with a sense of purpose and direction, helping them to overcome the trauma of the riots and regain their confidence and self-esteem.
By showcasing the talent and entrepreneurial spirit of these women, Taharat is helping break down barriers and create new opportunities for women and girls in the Shiv Vihar locality.
One other key factor that has contributed to the success of the program is its focus on practical skills that are relevant to the local job market. The program has been designed to provide training to participants in a diverse set of skills, including tailoring, beauty-parlor, sanitary pad making, as well as other handicrafts designing.
By providing women and girls with the skills and tools they need to succeed, Miles2Smile Foundation is helping to create a more just and equitable society, where everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their potential and achieve their dreams.
As we look to the future, it is clear that with the challenges posed by poverty, inequality, and social unrest, it is essential that we continue to invest in education and skill development programs that empower disadvantaged communities and promote positive social change.
