Need & Rational

In rural India, unemployment & underemployment is very high especially amongst women & adolescent girls. People do not think necessary providing opportunities to the women & adolescent girls for modern education & vocational skills due to their poverty, tradition & current trend in the society like just boys. They think also that women & girls are only for cooking food, home chores & giving baby child, because of this, women & adolescent girls are forced to live dependent, deprived, bias, voiceless, marginalized life and relegated to the status of subjugated class.

Jamia through this project will strive to make them self-reliant, restore their dignity and empower them through moral education, vocational skills and opportunities for entrepreneurship & will improve quality of life, role & participation contributing for family system & country as well. The project will provide all the opportunities at their home or nearby home keeping in smooth functioning of family institution.

These factors require the need for Vocational training project in the area wherewomen humiliation, un-Islamic culture, poverty, and the burden of Govt. authorities can be reduced.
