Mahindra World City, Jaipur promotes women empowerment in a big way. MWC believes that for India to maintain its growth trajectory, it is imperative that women have access to education, training programs and support systems. With this they can come out of the veil (parda) and walk the road to prosperity. Unfortunately, this access is not that easily available, especially in rural areas.
From Parda to Prosperity is an ongoing program at MWCJ, which was started 6 years ago for people of all 14 villages neighboring MWC, Jaipur. As they say, educate a woman and you educate a family. With a view to achieve inclusive development, MWCJ took initiative of bring out the talents hidden behind the veils. The idea was to provide vocational/ skill training as this would lead to boarder economic impacts in households.
The focus areas of this women empowerment program have been – Education, Vocational Training & Socio-Economic empowerment of Women, Community Participation & Development.
MWCJ has empowered 1125 women till date, 1075 women through 95 Self Help Groups and 50 women are employed at MWCJ and Campus clients.
MWC, Jaipur along with its partner NGO TBI has been conducting various training programs for the benefit of the unemployed youth, faculty members from institutions, and for the engineering students looking to take up entrepreneurship as a career.
