Project: RCPM_Project_SwayamSiddha_deAsra Swayamsiddhas are ready to leap forward with deAsra Now a days, Many young ladies from lower income group are facing severing mental trauma during divorce proceedings(Many are on the verge of suicide). Renuka Swaroop institute has come forward and tied up Family court to offer them vocational training ( fashion design, child care, Beauty Parlor, Computer literacy.. ) so that they can restart their life again. Over the last 4-5 years, Rotary Club of Pune Metro (RCPM) has been funding the vocational training expenses of these needy ladies ( Approx 6-12 Ladies per year). This year, we all are going to take a leap forward. These ladies who have been (or being ) trained, we are motivating them to start their own small business around their expertise with help from deAsra Foundation. ( started by Mr. Anand Deshpande of Persistent) First ‘open introductory meeting’ was conducted on 8th October, in the Institution’s premises. It was attended by over 60 ladies of different age and professional interest. deAsra Team (Ms Aishwairya, Ms Rupali) had interacted with the participants to know their current issues and challenges. Mrs. Sarika Wagh (Renuka Swaroop Institute) had organised entire event Participants were open and candid to discuss and share the difficulties faced by them and expressed that the proposed learning and support will be very useful for converting their ideas into realities. RCPM President Rtn. Vivek Kulkarni started this informal meeting with a brief introduction of Rotary, Association of RCPM with Renuka Swaroop Institution, Partnership of RCPM and deAasra. Rtn. PP Padma Shahane and Convener Ann Madhavi Chouhan coordinated the event from RCPM and will continue to take it forward to convert them as SWAYAMSIDHDHA (?????????????) in true sense. deAsra team (Aishwairya and Rupali) explained their activities and how they can help ladies to set up the business. First Lady Ann Madhavi Kulkarni, Ann Amruta Devchakke and Rajendra Erande were present during the event. Due to festival season (work load pressure), lot of students expressed about their inability to attend the event. They are extremely keen to attend forthcoming sessions and get associated with these activities. With this unique initiative ( It is going to be Marathon), in line with today’s need, RCPM intends to support budding woman entrepreneurs from Renuka Swaroop with necessary business start-up expertise in collaborating with deAsra. Seeing their Progress on this path, is definitely worth all the efforts and funds spent by all of us.
