Project Sundari of RC Nagpur Vision, RID 3030, is training 100 women in beauty care, in partnership with the Chitnavis Trust, a local NGO, and Mahila Aarthik Vikas Mahamandal, a women’s empowerment initiative run by the Maharashtra government. The three-month project is being conducted at four rural centres near Nagpur. Club president Vikram Naidu said that girls from one of the five batches being trained under this programme hail from families who have lost their breadwinners to Covid, while another batch of 20 women are hearing-impaired.
The women are trained in language and soft skills additionally to build rapport with clients.
The first two batches of 40 Project Sundari trainees received their course completion certificates from DG Ramesh Meher. The club is also working with a start-up that provides beauty services at home for the placements of these candidates.
