Srujna is a not for profit transforming underprivileged women into ‘Srujna Sheroes’ through sustainable livelihood opportunities.
Srujna Sheroes are woman changemakers from the lesser privileged communities who have showed courage to create a meaningful life for themselves and others.
“Mujhe bahar jane se bilkul dar nahi lagta, pehle lagta tha, abhi nahi!” was the proclamation of the courageous Rupali Satpute, a house wife who started a project for the welfare of underprivileged and uneducated women.
Rupali Satpute, started tailoring to financially support her family. Even after marriage with two children, she never stopped learning. With her strong will power she learnt English, started earning and simultaneously managed her family and her two children. She confidently says “I am not afraid of talking to new people”.
She recently got promoted as supervisor but did not confine herself to tailoring, but also started project “Shivan” for women in skill training and supported women to survive and made them independent. Now she says that she loves empowering her fellow women and taking everyone along.
When women earn, communities progress - it is estimated that women spend 90% of their income on health, education and their family. If empowered, underprivileged women are capable of creating waves of change!
Srujna supports these underprivileged women by providing them the resources and abilities for livelihood development. The main activities it undertakes are skill training, business training and market linkage. It has provided livelihood to over 6000 women in a mere span of 5 years.
