THE SSF WOMAN

They come from a world where they were told that the sky is the limit for their husbands and brothers, but for them their future was limited; the SSF woman is one who is determined to break barriers to bring about socio-economic change in her everyday life and that of her children.  
.. SHE'S ALL ABOUT THE BOSS STORIES & NOT THE SOB ONES!

HER WORK

In an attempt to revive the  dying craft of charpoy weaving, we spent half a decade identifying the remaining few weavers to train and pass on this form of weaving to rural women in need of employment. We aim to provide these newly trained artisans a global platform to market their products thereby creating a model of sustainable income and employment.

SUPPORT OUR WOMEN

Before working for SSF, the women of Muzaffarnagar District (also known for its crime), most of whom were married at the age of 15/16, were completely reliant on their husbands for financial support. We have provided the opportunity for these women to gain self-confidence and pride as they are now an additional source of income generation for their families, earning up to 5000 rupees per month. You can support our women by buying our products or writing to us at contact@skilledsamaritan.com for additional details.
