ADULT LITERACY FOR WOMEN ARTISANS

Asia Initiatives has partnered with SEWA (the Self-Employed Women’s Association) to promote economic empowerment and drive education initiatives by improving literacy for women weavers in Delhi. SEWA is the world’s largest organization of informal workers and the largest nonprofit in India, with over two million members. Ruaab is a women’s garment producer cooperative that is managed and run by the workers themselves. Asia Initiatives implemented SoCCs with over 200 women to help them gain skills that will enhance their ability to gain profit and success. Women earn SoCCs for timely delivery of products weaved without mistakes, community cleaning drives, and attending SHG meetings. Women redeem SoCCs for Adult Literacy classes.
