SEWA’s development programs work together to address the systemic and chronic economic and social barriers that women in the informal economy face. SEWA’s holistic approach to development works towards ‘Eleven Points’. Once these Eleven Points are fully achieved, women will attain self-reliance and full employment.
Self-reliance yet again deals with equipping themselves with necessary skills and resources to be independent, rather self-dependent to attain a sense of security, both economically and socially.
SEWA’s eleven-point approach holistically deals with several aspects of social empowerment including the primary needs of food and nutrition, income, healthcare and housing, childcare which further expands to education and employment. Attaining these would, in turn, give opportunities to showcase leadership, and organizational skills while forming cooperatives thereby attaining self-reliance.
These eleven points serve as a chain reaction and help our women achieve the best of their potential thereby contributing towards their overall development.
