Self reliance

Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore make your own future. - Swami Vivekananda

DakshiniPrayash believes that the ultimate fruits of good health and a holistic education should be self-reliance. To better achieve independence from fear and favourfrom external sources, DakshiniPrayash has established vocational training units that impart necessary skills to women to manufacture articles such as paper bags, embroidered bags and apparel, dusters and mops, and other articles of household utility and décor. Training sessions are conducted by experts who handhold their protégés till such time they assume sufficient self-confidence. The Society provides regular sewing classes in association with Inner wheel Club of Calcutta Mahanagar and also encourages acquisition of sewing machines and manual looms through loans on easy terms.

DakshiniPrayash assists the women to market the articles through a number of exhibitions and sales that it participates in. The DakshiniPrayash website offers opportunities for online shopping of these delightful articles.
