What We've Accomplished
Vocational Training for 100,000 Women
To equip economically vulnerable women with the skills and means to set up cottage industries, more than 6,000 self groups for women across India and 1,000 groups in the nearby Andaman Islands have been established.
Microcredit Loans Get Them Started
So far, ETW has helped 3,500 of these groups receive microcredit loans -- benefitting more than 60,000 families.
Life & Accident Insurance to Protect their Family's Future
Every member of the self help groups has been enrolled in a plan with the Life Insurance Corporation of India. As part of the agreement, the insurance company also provides scholarships to 15% of the policyholder's children. Each year, these scholarships will rotate, so every family can benefit.
