Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA), along with EMpower, has organised a three-day international workshop in Ahmedabad for female entrepreneurs. Welfare organisations from seven countries are participating in the workshop.

The objective of the workshop is to help disadvantaged women from across the world make a living. Participants of the workshop are being taught to make handbags and other accessories. Women from different countries who have worked against the odds with the help of NGOs will share their experience at the workshop.

“The workshop’s key purpose is networking,” the CEO of SEWA Trade Facilitation Centre, Mona Dave, said. “We at SEWA believe in sharing and gaining knowledge. We have thought of a programme called e-dialogue through which experts will provide online assistance.”
