In its continuous efforts to empower women, Sonalika CSR has joined hands with Navjyoti Foundation to give women a sense of entrepreneurship apart from micro financing aspect of Self Help Groups. Sonalika, with this initiative, has taken charge of empowering almost 3000 women through formation of 200 SHGs. Currently, few women from various SHG’s are being trained to start a Garment Manufacturing unit which will help these women to start their own business and a social entrepreneurship. Few other group of women from other SHG’s are being trained in vermicomposting, toy making, masala making, handicrafts and much more. They are also being trained to sell these on various platforms along with the digital e-commerce platforms, thus enabling them to be self efficient and become entrepreneurs in their own right. Also, one of the biggest role of these women is that they have taken up the responsibility to create a social movement in their villages by making people aware about various government policies like legal rights for women, Paani Panchayat for saving water and pond restoration, protecting environment by plantation etc.
