Once our women start feeling confident to take on the world, they begin to engage in the transformation process. It is an elaborate journey whereby the women experience a transformation in their bodies, mind and attitudes.
Our education programme is what we like to believe is customised: crafted according to the educational level, interests and strengths of the women we work with.
In the non-formal education set up, it is provided in-house which in turn motivates them to be a part of the formal education system. Literacy, higher education, life skills, leadership skills, vocational training, and physical education are key components of this program.
Livelihood & Entrepreneurship
Urja’s livelihood programme includes employment preparation through training in necessary skills and forging linkages with suitable employment opportunities that will provide a potential growth for the women.
At Urja, however, we give a lot of importance to self- reliance. Our focus is on making them independent and through our entrepreneurship programme we teach them skills in tangent with their interests. This in turn allows the leeway for the women to become enterpreneurs in their own rights.
At Urja, we focus on two systems of mentorship. The peer mentorship allows the women to have a mentee and facilitate each other in their journey.
The external mentorship opens up avenues to learn from a trained personnel, as they advance in their lives.
Our beneficiaries need leadership programmes that help them take right decision in their lives and emerge as a confident woman. We arrange regularsessions with reputed social leaders who spend time in understanding these women and guide them towards a better life.
