Elisabeth Sanna Women Empowerment Center
Established in 2004 this center has been aiming at the economic self sufficiency and empowerment of women living in poverty and dehumanizing social situations. Initially it focused on women working in the granite quarries. Teaching them tailoring and providing each one with a sewing machine free of cost at the end of the course the center liberated numerous women from the granite quarries and made them financially self sufficient.
The center continues to offer two tailoring courses - each consisting of six months - for sixty women. Besides tailoring, they are taught also to make dolls, papad, pickle and jam.
They are also given awareness programs related to women, family and social life.
Note: Currently the center is closed as a new building for the center is under construction.
