Shaktika for Women

The Shaktika 'Power to Women' programme through various forms of creative endeavours is devised to give rural and tribal women an opportunity to develop latent skills that are part of their indigenous heritage. The programme looks upon women's culture as a source of power and a significant resource for their empowerment. An important area of their culturally rooted strength in West Bengal is the variety of craft skills that are part of women's heritage. The centre proposes to start a capacity building self-help group whereby the rural and tribal women living in that area are given training in forms of 'green' creativity. These would involve creating new forms Kantha embroidery with eco-centric designs and other forms of skills such as indigenous knowledge resources that are fast disappearing.
