December 15, 2023 – Inauguration of the “Shivsakthi Stitching Unit”  in Kattilkadavu, Kollam district. This new group business,  registered with the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME), was started by 15 women who successfully completed their tailoring training at the Amrita Sankalp Kattilkadavu Center, jointly with their trainer.
The function took place in the presence of Sri C.R.Mahesh, MLA  Karunagappally with members of Kulasekharapuram Panchayat, Dr Bhavani Rao, #AMMACHILab Director, Dr Sreevidya, Associate Director AMMACHI Labs, Brahmacharini Karunyamrita Chaitanya,  along with other team members from AMMACHI Labs.  The students had benefited from financial assistance received from the Industries Department and the Union Bank of India.

We are proud each time we announce similar news, as this was the final goal behind the AVSAR Sankalp (Skill Acquisition and Knowledge Awareness for Livelihood Promotion) project, implemented in 2022 in various parts of India by Amrita University, in collaboration with the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Government of India, and the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). The project offered 4500 women from 6 Indian states the skills and confidence to start their own businesses and earn income.
