Project Swatantra- The Freedom

A majority of the Indian population even for People with Disabilities, live in rural India and most, tend to fall back on their families for support or end up doing some meager jobs with almost negligible earnings.

We aim to create sustainable mass livelihood opportunities not only for Persons with Disabilities, but also acid attack victims, transgender persons, underprivileged women, single mothers and caregivers of children with disabilities. Project Swatantra- The Freedom works towards achieving this goal of ours. We have two programs under the same.

  1. Trains the trainers of our partner organizations in different skills and expertise so that they can inculcate the same amongst the beneficiaries.
  2. Train SHGs and Persons with Disabilities and their caregivers

India has 20+ crore People with Disability and less than 1% are meaningfully employed.

Shrikanth says “I was born blind, and didn’t know what to do in life. I roam around alone. Some people come forward to help me but others simply ignore me. I do all the household chores by myself, from cooking and cleaning to ironing clothes. This work place has given me all the support. I polish the wooden materials, which is needed for finishing the product. Some products like the penstand and card holder take less time, some larger wooden products take 2 days”

Sanam says “ Gas burst, the next moment I was burnt with pain. I don’t know how I survived. I had left my son to school and just came home to start cooking for the day. Next day I opened my eyes and saw myself at hospital. My husband divorced me later, just because he couldn’t see my burnt body. I dint lose hope. I believe girls shouldn’t lose hope and challenge the situations.”

The focus of our upcoming projects is to create a sustainable environment for all. Going green has become a primary focus for all humanity to reduce the negative impact on the environment and preserve natural resources. In order to promote sustainable development and conserve the Mother Earth, it is important for us to deviate from our conventional ways of exploitation to satisfy our greed for more. It is important that we consider the alternative forms of resources which are more natural and eco-friendly.
