Inspired by our Hon’ble PM Narendra Modi ji’s commitment to support and empower ‘Nari Shakti’ through women-led development, we are working with the Trust to strengthen the role of women in the rural economy. We strongly believe that women can play a vital role in raising the standard of living in rural communities. Our skill development initiatives promote sustainable livelihoods and we are glad that our efforts are showing positive results.”
