The project Rooh-Awakening Women’s soul empowers women to generate self-employment and a means of income using training of vocational and professional skills. Women in India have been facing inequality for centuries now so here at Rooh, we help women overcome their worst fears and become independent. They are trained in different fields according to their interests and involved in a variety of activities which include making of Handicraft Products.
