Covid19 has brought immense change in everyone's lives. The announcement of the unprecedented lock-down gave hundreds of millions of Indians less than four hours to prepare. Most of those who come under the purview belong to India’s massive informal economy, those employed in unorganized sector are bearing the brunt of covid19 & had a hard time feeding their families.
Grim situation of our women:
Unemployment among the under-privileged women has been a factor to the escalating incidents of domestic abuse.
Raah Foundation for Enlightening Lives a Not- for- Profit organisation (Cloth Masks - Your Necessity, Their Livelihood) through this project will empower 150 women by helping them achieve a steady income generation facility through their skill of cloth mask making from the comfort of their house and a opportunity to earn a little something.
The cloth masks being reusable and washable, will be saving our environment of the mass waste that will be generated due to single use masks.
It has become more important than ever to work
now and create a livelihood for our women as husbands of many are daily wage workers and are unable to make a livelihood during this time.
