SHE - COVID Affected Families (SHE-CAF)

The second wave of Covid-19 claimed a total of 367,097 lives in India out of which 64% were men and 40% were aged somewhere between 21-40, being the only earning members. A huge number of women lost their spouses and have been left completely traumatized and paralyzed with helplessness not just emotionally, but also financially.  47% of earning women also lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

We at Sewa International believe that these women, with a little push, can be empowered to stand on their own two feet and start a new life. Through our project SHE-CAF, we hope to identify these women and rehabilitate them by providing certified livelihood skill training courses, counseling sessions, and placements and overlook the entire process till the very end.

A total of 2000 beneficiaries will be identified for the same.

Project Objectives

  • Provide holistic counseling and support (Livelihood skills Training and placements) to women adversely affected by the pandemic.
  • Hone existing skills of women from tribal and rural communities

Long Term Impact

With initiatives like SHE-CAF, we want to create awareness and ripples across society to empower women who underwent major losses and are ready to take control of their lives and inspire more people around them to do the same.

Our goal is to bring down the rising levels of poverty and unemployment that have occurred because of Covid-19.
