Many are sinking deeper into poverty and needs are growing as crisis spreads: many women, girls in our target area are uneducated and school dropout at young age. Poorest among are struggling to put food on table. Many postpone children education just to keep their families fed. They put off health care needs to pay basic utilities. They postpone dreams or stop saving money because there's nothing extra to save. The secret of training is to empower, restore and regenerate women and girls.
When women and girls are poor, families and communities cannot be strong. Women living in poverty face greater challenges in earning a steady income, educating and feeding their children, and escaping violence.
More than ten lakh people around the world live on less than ten rupees a day— and women makes majority of the world’s poorest citizens. Women face much number of economic barriers in developing countries, such as unequal low wages, bad working conditions, property rights, and lack of access to credit.
There are still millions of women and girls who remain in poverty and are exploited, despite their long hours of hard labor. It is our social responsibility to bring the deprived and hapless women and girls into the mainstream, so as to enable them to avail the new opportunities that are developing with the ongoing economic reforms in our country.

The poor and under privileged rural trainees suffer without any refreshment. They come for training after doing all their house hold work. CHHASE provide refreshment like tea and biscuits to give energy to our trainees to learn better and to provide a better future to earn and live securely.
CHHASE provide job opportunity where ever possible in the local market.
Some of our trainees are not able to go for work due to certain problems and some of them arenot able to start their own business due the cost of sewing machine and accessories. CHHASE select the deserving, and provide sewing machines to start their sewing business.
Our youth from different locations struggle to come for skills learning. CHHASE is unable to provide transportation to poor youth for life changing skills trainings like Sewing, Embroidery, Artificial jewel making, beautician trainings. They want secured life with their own earnings. Providing transport for these youth is our greatest challenge, with van, we will be able to increase program access. We believe skills trainings are better opportunities to earn. Won't you?
