Self sustainability through economic empowerment
In partnership with the National NGO Confederation, the Cultural Academy for Peace successfully facilitated the distribution of sewing machines to 43 women entrepreneurs. This significant event took place at the Shanthibhavan Auditorium on October 10, 2023, marking the second phase of our empowering initiative.
The program commenced with the honourable Ward Counsellor, Ms. Bindhu Shivan, inaugurating the event. Following her opening remarks, Ms. Beena Sebastian, Chairperson of the Cultural Academy, delivered a moving presidential address. The key note address was presented by Justice Leelamani, the former district judge , who shared valuable insights and words of encouragement for women.
The atmosphere was filled with joy as the women received their sewing machines, and their positive feedback served as a testament to the impact of our collaborative efforts.
