“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” - Kahlil Gibran
The members of Sarvahitey are in regular communication with the disadvantaged members of the society neighbouring the residential as well as professional habitats of the members. They regularly take updates on the problems faced by the people that constitute the underprivileged section. One such incident apprised us of the lack of self-sufficiency in the young adults and adults around Noida Sector 51, i.e. the Noida office of Sarvahitey.
Taking prompt note of the situation and formulating a plan of action to provide training to the appropriate population, the members realised that there is a need for making arrangements for such people. The manner in which the training may be provided to them was decided as vocational training in small scale production of household items.
Since then, the members of Sarvahitey, headed by Ms. Deepali Ahuja, who is a guest lecturer at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Institute for Physically Handicapped, gather at F-56, Sector 51, Noida weekly, to teach house maids and other unskilled women to produce various articles and apparels, including mobile covers, diyas, Christmas trees, etc., which are then sold to buyers through various mediums.
Through this project, Sarvahitey proposes to, and is making efforts towards such endeavours where these unskilled women may raise their incomes substantially, and become self-sufficient, thereby empowering themselves in a capital dominant society.
