A large section of women in India, both in rural and urban slums need to be educated and empowered. As the first step, Indian Development Foundation launched its first women empowerment programme at Hyderabad in collaboration with Centre for Social Service. A group of women were presented with tailoring machine and embroidery machine. Now the project has taken good shape and the trained women are able to make products which can help them to generate income for their livelihood. IDF in its next step is going ahead in educating the women in urban slums, particularly parents of the children studying in IDF Bal Gurukuls. The programme is designed to suit the home-makers as it will help them to get acclimatized with their wards education.
