"STRI GRAH UDYOG” Mega project (District 326)

Inner Wheel Club of Jabalpur Mid Town Next Nu-Gen

President: Dr Seema Mehrotra

Secretary: Dr Aboli Pansey

Date: 14 November 2021

On 14 November 2021, District Chairman Mrs Manisha Shrivastava visited "Stri Grah Udyog”, a mega project which she launched in July during the Club installation ceremony. It had taken 5 months to complete. The project was to empower poor women by giving them financial independence, not by charitably giving cash but to “teach them how to catch a fish”.

The women were taught how to manufacture daily household consumable products. We started with 2 products, a dish washing liquid “SHINE”, and a handwash called “CARE”.

We visited to the slum area and found a group of destitute women who are keen to learn new things. We also visited factories and met many manufacturers. Most of them refused to share their formula with us.

One gentleman was ready to share his formula for this noble cause. Club Treasurer Mrs Sakshi Gulati and I (the Club President) and went for training for a week. The first lesson was a demonstration. This was followed by daily practices for 6 days to prepare the dish washing liquid. After 7 days, we were finally able to achieve a consistency.

We demonstrated and taught our Club’s Pink First beneficiaries (members of Stree Grah Udyog). After several days of training, we were able to launch the two products.

During this visit by the District Chairman, all the members purchased the first lot (15 litres) and everyone was so satisfied with the quality that they demanded more.

Compared to many other famous brands, SHINE showed the following benefits:

1. Cost effective (as we don't spend on advertising).

2. It will not dry your hands after using.

3. It will rinse completely and will not leave a white coating, seen when using some branded products.

4. It was made after lot of market survey....

5 As we don't have to pay wholesalers so we could put all efforts in using good quality materials.

Beneficiaries: Women in slum areas female who are now members of Stri Grah Udyog

Pre-school Development (District 321)

Inner Wheel Club Of Trivandrum

President: Dr Lalitha Ramakrishnan

Date: 20 November 2021

Vizhinjam is a coastal area in Trivandrum with about 5700 families / households. It has 27 anganwadis. An “anganwadi” means a ‘courtyard shelter’ in India. The system of anganwadis was developed in 1975 by the Indian government to alleviate malnutrition in children. The anganwadis provide meals each day to children under six years old living in slums, and also provide lessons in health, hygiene and literacy in a nurturing pre-school environment. They often become community centres for women and children, contributing programmes and services to early childhood education, nutrition and healthcare.

Two of these anganwadis did not have electricity. The Inner Wheel Club of Trivandrum took it up as a project by installing the electrical supply and providing the electrical accessories for the two centres at Kovalam and Vizhinjam in October.

IWC of Trivandrum collaborated with ICDS under the Department of Women & Children Development. The Club is doing a weekly skill development programme for children from this coastal area, too.

The centre at Kovalam is all spruced up now, with assistance from the Government of Kerala.
