WOMEN INDIA TRUST
Women’s India Trust (WIT) is a charitable organization established in the year 1968 by Ms. Kamila Tyabji. WIT started by training less privileged and unskilled women in Mumbai to stitch sari petticoats. Since then WIT has helped many women to develop skills and earn a regular income; this has changed their lives and the lives of their families. WIT’s mission is to help women to help themselves by providing a platform for advancement and empowerment to unskilled and disadvantaged women.
WIT provides easy access to education, vocational skills training and employment. Its objectives are: To use the natural talents of girls and women who have no special skills, both in the urban and rural areas, so that they may be drawn into the national economy. To help them actively with ideas and skills in voluntary as well as paid work, and to upgrade their talents so that they may become productive members of society. To institute training methods on the job, so that needy persons may be enabled to both earn and learn.
To assist in the marketing of products made by them so that the training and upgrading of the needy may be undertaken as far as possible on a self-supporting basis.
