SUPPORTING EDUCATION OF TRIBAL SCHOOLS
VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM AT NGO EKTARA
A registered Trust, Ektara began its journey in 2011 with a small group of children and women from impoverished families in the slums of Topsia and Tiljala. Starting with just 20 odd beneficiaries, Ektara now has over 700 direct beneficiaries. Sreepriya Exports is proud to be one of them and contributes to their vocational training program- UDAAN
This program was started with a small group of mothers keen on acquiring stitching skills enabling them to work out of their homes. The unit trains women to pursue sewing and embroidery as a profession and helps them find employment. Sreepriya donates raw materials such as fabrics at the end of every season which enables these women to make a variety of products for sale.
Sreepriya, in partnership with the NGO Art of Living has been conducting regular eye screening camps, providing medicines and funding surgeries in the villages of local craftsmen for over 15 years.
