New Delhi, Dec 11 (ANI-NewsVoir): Ashiana Housing Ltd, has moved a step ahead in taking initiatives for CSR activities for educating its workforce. The company has been making novel efforts to empower their women folk.
The housing giant granted Canadian USD 70000 (approximately Rs. 35 Lakhs) is awarded by the Sustainability Innovation Grant fund (SIG fund) towards women empowerment project.
The award is instituted by Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA), a Canadian organisation.
Ashiana Housing Ltd was recommended by Creador, a fund management company working in India.
The company aims to utilize the whole amount for women’s skill training programs, so as to make this section of the society independent and enable them to earn a better living.
Through this initiative, women will be trained to become better masons, housekeeping and security staff, thereby increasing their employability quotient.
As a part of this initiative, women will be provided practical training along with theory classes in the morning. As a part of the next phase of training program, after three years, all semi-skilled women will be given an advanced training for more complicated tasks such as pasting tiles on wall, skirting, etc.
Undoubtedly, this training would provide a wider range of employability options to these women and help them even if they move to other construction sites. This is one of the most novel steps taken by the housing major for the betterment of their women folk. (ANI-NewsVoir)
