Vocational Training Program for Women.

The growing social awareness across the globe has brought a number of issues to the fore among which gender equality and empowerment of women are very significant. Empowerment is multy pronged strategy which focuses on empowering women socially, economically, politically & culturally and also our mission is to provide quality, & easily adoptable training to women and dropout youth for economical strength. We provide easy and adoptable to start their  own business with a very low capital, because success of empowerment can be measured on utilization of training. 
So we mainly impart training on making of soft toys, making of jute fancy bags, cord bags, crystal bags, show pieces, and many such other hand crafts. Presently we are running two vocational training centers for women in rural area, one at Munshirhat and another in our block and targeted area Chunavati. 
75% of our total population lives in our village area and socio-economic condition is not explainable. It is the time to think about our village’s condition besides urban problems. Total capacity of each center is 40, every year 80 woman got training on various trades and certified. 
Partly the program was supported by “Engineering Institute of Junior Executive, Dalalpukur” – Govt. of West Behgal under CDTP scheme. Post training placement has been done through various microfinance companies, local bank, through formation of Self Help Group. SUPRAVAT also time to time organizing motivation camp for future betterment, display and sale their product in local “Mela”, help them to capture urban market etc.

In the year 2014 having plan to start a new tread like Tailoring & Cutting, with the view of market demand and seeking fund to run our vocational training centers.
