As the world’s fastest growing economy, India needs to constantly keep adding skilled workforce to contribute to industrial productivity. Sumadhura Foundation sees this as an opportunity to contribute to nation building by skilling the youth, women and the ex-service personnel through their vocational skills training program.
Vocational Skills training, equips individuals with practical skills necessary to begin or enhance a career. Skills training also helps bridge the gap between unemployment and employability.
Sumadhura Foundation would like to start this journey of vocational skills training by designing programs to promote employability and enhance livelihood of women from the poorer section of the society.

To provide skill training to women from the underprivileged section on making dustbin liners with newspapers, in association with Green Bug.
Project Details / Brief:
We have partnered with Green Bug, an organization to provide skill training to make paper liners for bins. These paper liners are handmade and are consistently high quality products. They train women to make these paper liners. The liners are made using discarded newspapers and starch glue, and replaces the plastic liners that are normally used for lining garbage bins..Read More..
Sumadhura Foundation with Green Bug would like to impart this skill to the women from the poorer section of society. We would also support them in selling the prepared bin liners in coordination with Green Bug.
This will help the women earn a supplement income to the otherwise meagre family income. This will help them in improving their living conditions. It also makes them feel proud that the product they made benefits the environment too.
Training will be provided in batches of 12-15 women per batch. Training will span over 2 days, with the first day session of 3 hours and the second session will be held within a span of one week and will take about 1.5-2 hours.
Skill development for women from the poorer section.
