Catering for young girls and women with no formal educational background, the vocational skills training provided at the WIT centre have proved a boon for a number of women and girls. After the course the women either find employment in private companies or are employed as wage workers at WIT. Some have even set up on their own.

The teaching of skills involved in making soft toys and handicrafts is a further example of helping women to gain economic independence. The course includes skills to produce a wide range of popular and adorable children’s toys as well as handicrafts.

WIT provides Screen printing training for women to make handmade stationery, greeting cards, gift tags, paper bags, letterheads, letter writing paper sets, envelopes and customised stationery.The Block printing course is available to women to create items such as bed spreads, tablecloths, clothing and bags.

The WIT Online Shop showcases some of the products made by women who have been trained at WIT. The hand-crafted items are beautiful, unique and make excellent gifts.Visit the WIT online shop at wit.org.in and let your fingers do the shopping. Your products will be delivered to your doorstep!
