Training women with marketable skills gives them the opportunity to earn an income and gain financial independence.

Why it matters

Work is often hard to find for women in Moradabad because the majority of handcraft businesses are run by men who do not consider women worthy of being metal craft artisans. The young women learn stitching and embroidery, a marketable skill which helps them become independent with a source of income.
