IDFC FIRST Bank in partnership with Animedh Charitable Trust runs an income generation program to train women from low income groups residing in slums of Mumbai in advance tailoring courses to help them become financially independent by enabling them to start earning from home. We have trained 650 women across our three tailoring centers located in Jogeshwari, Andheri and Vashi till date.
|Kartika who has difficulty hearing in both her ears, started training at IDFC FIRST Bank supported Project Saksham. She was always very keen in getting to know how clothes were made. Due to her hearing impairment she was delivered instructions in written form and here is what she has to say about our support - "I never thought I would be able to work in an environment like this, but now I no longer look at my inability to hear as something that will stop me. Thank you IDFC FIRST Bank for supporting me to become self-reliant." |
