Srujna is a registered charitable trust established in 2011. Srujna is a platform that creates income opportunities for disadvantaged women to sell handmade products and earn a regular income. Through this, Srujna aims to transform them into confident, independent, and contributing members of their families and communities. Since 2011, Srujna has created opportunities for 6,500 disadvantaged women.
They select semi-skilled women (in sewing, stitching, home-made foods, etc.) and provide them with a platform. Besides, they also provide raw materials to make their skill proficient and also help them getting work orders, especially from corporates, organize exhibitions etc. to earn their livelihood and live respectfully.
