Project Unnati - Engage…Empower…Sustain
As governments, corporates, and Social organizations seek to provide relief and support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, ARCH Foundation's Unnati in collaboration with Voltamp Transformers Pvt. Ltd. focuses largely on challenges faced by women and adolescent girls in rural-income settings and implement evidence-based solutions to support an inclusive recovery.
Project Unnati views women’s economic empowerment as the transformative process by which women and girls go from having limited power, voice, and choice at home and in the economy to have the skills, resources, and opportunities needed to benefit from economic gains.
Project Unnati will be focusing on four major components –
1. Awareness campaign for achieving 100% vaccination in targeted village
2. Menstrual and reproductive Health Management through SHGs and frontline health workers
3. Digital literacy
4. Micro-enterprise creation/strengthening existing livelihood activities
As a pilot, the project will be covering 500 families from the Savli area of the Vadodara district and will be later expanded to other villages.
