SHREE SHAKTI FOUNDATION
Cloth & Co. have supported SEWA Shram Shakti Foundation over the past 4 years by providing continuity of work as well as providing advice and funding for various programs through their Social Enterprise Women Fibre To Fashion. SSSF was founded to support victims of human trafficking & domestic violence, mainly women and children. They provide a safe environment for these victims to live, training them to learn new skills and work in ongoing and dignified employment.
The Foundation bridges the gap between enslavement and free and independent life, empowering less advantaged girls and women by training at least 5000 women/girls from various shelter homes.
This centre is for survivors of sex trafficking and provides them with the skills, accountability, discipline and support to become productive members of society.
The goal is to enhance the social and economic empowerment of marginalised and oppressed women and girls across India. This objective is sought to be accomplished by:
- Improving their skills and making them capable of a professional environment.
- Developing women and girls of the rural and urban areas to enable them to access and better negotiate services, credit and assets from public and private sector agencies and financial institutions.
- Investing in capacity building of public and private service providers.
- Playing a catalytic role in promoting the development of social enterprises in the textile/fashion industry.
