33 women were trained in a variety of skill-based fields, including tailoring, needlework, paper plate production, oil extraction, mushroom cultivation, and cattle rearing. The Samunnati Foundation is likely to assist the projects and help them become a reality in the near future.

The program’s coordinator, Dr P Jyothi, a professor at the School of Management Studies said, “The women will be benefited as they have undergone skill-based training in the above courses and are likely to start enterprises with the help of the Samunnati Foundation. SMS has been given the responsibility of hand holding the women in the start of their business enterprises”.
