Empowerment of Women Artisans in Hand Embroidery
Under the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, SEEDS implements the handicrafts program from the year 2012 to enhance the life of women artisans in our targeted area. Handicrafts constitute an important segment of the decentralized/unorganized sector of our economy. It is mainly rural based, having reach in backward and inaccessible area. Originally, started as a part time activity in rural areas, it has now transformed in to a flourishing economic activity due to significant market demand over the years. Baseline survey was completed in Aruppukottai and Kariyapatti Block to find out the potential Women Artisans in Hand Embroidery. Through the survey SEEDS selected 305 women artisans and ID cards and health cards issued to them. Further we plan to provide skill development training and Design Development workshop to the selected participants to enhance their skill in the latest embroidery design. Under the RGSSBY scheme, 9 artisans got insurance benefit for the amount of Rs. 22379/-
