The Sharon Society also working for the welfare and development of widows women through formation of Self Help Groups (SHGs) and providing various vocational training like stitching, door & ﬂoor Mate making, vegetable Vender, idly & dosa butter vender etc. these women Self Help Groups are playing very important role in creating awareness on various sensitive issues like HIV/AIDS and disabilities.
The Project was started in 2015-16 with one-time financial assistant from Rights Sharing Worlds Resources (RSWR) USA. In 2016-17 onwards, Sharon Society of Pondicherry is running independently this project. The main objective of this project is to provide earning resources for destitute women; who are not able to manage their family needs and living low esteem. This year in 2018-19, we had organized 4 days training program on wire basket & other essential household things making for women from community. The training was very useful for women who want to start home based business. Under the project each woman will get Rs. 85/- per basket as making charges. During the training program around 25 homemakers participated.
