Bokaro: Aimed at fostering economic independence among women, the Krantikari Ispat Mazdoor Sangh (KIMS-HMS) Mahila Cell has inaugurated a women’s workshop located at Plot No. 203, Co-operative Colony. The grand inauguration was carried out by the esteemed chief guest and General Secretary of the association, Rajendra Singh.
Babli Singh, the President of the women’s wing of the union, addressed the media to shed light on the nature of training that will be provided to women in this workshop, focusing on micro and household industries.
During a press conference, Singh, Chief Guest and General Secretary of the Sangh, emphasized the paramount importance of women’s empowerment in building a healthy and robust society.
He highlighted that a substantial portion of laborers in Bokaro engage in unorganized work, often on a contractual or daily wage basis, making it challenging for them to meet their family responsibilities and secure resources for their children’s education and development.
In response to this challenge, many women have taken up training in micro industries, forming self-help groups, and actively contributing to household needs, thereby uplifting their families and themselves economically.
On a national scale, women’s empowerment remains a top priority for the Hind Mazdoor Sabha.
The National Women’s Cell President, Champa Verma, has been tirelessly advocating for women’s rights not only within India but also on the international stage, representing the cause at the International Trade Union Congress (ITUC).
Speaking on the occasion, Singh stressed the need for continuous efforts to uplift women rather than mere symbolic gestures on National Women’s Day, celebrated on February 13th, coinciding with the birth anniversary of Sarojini Naidu, and International Women’s Day on March 8th.
Bokaro takes pride in the dedicated efforts of its female president, Babli Singh, who has successfully trained numerous women, enabling them to achieve financial independence. The organization’s membership has seen remarkable growth, with over 2000 women currently involved.
KIMS Women Cell envisions a future where they will continue their relentless commitment to providing underprivileged women with the strength to stand on their own feet.
In light of this initiative, the organization extends a heartfelt appeal to SAIL/Bokaro management, entrepreneurs, and the general public to support and empower women by patronizing the products crafted by this institute, thus championing the cause of women’s economic empowerment.
This workshop stands as a testament to the dedication and determination of the KIMS Women Cell in promoting women’s self-reliance and economic stability.
