GARIMA

GARIMA (Dignity) aims to create vocational opportunities for the disadvantaged populations in urban, semi-urban or rural settings by developing flexible skills, training and self or job employment services in consonance with the markets' needs and demands and prepare them to face the new economic challenges. GARIMA focuses more on girls and women and tries to remove the barriers for them.

GARIMA has an objective of training more than 10,000 women and men into income-oriented skills. Three GARIMA projects are being implemented at present:

GARIMA-GAIL for mothers of Padho aur Badho beneficiaries in Delhi/NCR.

GARIMA-WAPCOS is being implemented in Chandigarh villages of Hallomajra and Moulijagran for the past three years and has trained more than 1000 poor youth and women in various employable skills or income generation skills.

GARIMA-BPCL is being implemented in Loni area of Uttar Pradesh and trains women in zardozi embroidery. Zardozi embroidery is the glitteringly ornate, heavily encrusted gold thread work. An imperial craft brought to India by Delhi's first Turko-Afghan sultans in the 12th century, Zardozi became equally popular with the wealthy Hindu, Muslim and European elite down the ages. Zardozi is also combined with Dabka work and is originally said to be from Lucknow.Traditionally, only men did Zardozi work, and mostly in Lucknow and Kolkata. GARIMA Loni has trained more than 250 women in Zardozi work in Loni area of UP and the women are already earning good income by making zardozi pieces at home.
