Under Project Katran, Enactus – College of Vocational Studies’ maiden project, the society set up a stall at the annual fete of Bal Bharti Public School, Pitampura, on Christmas to sell cloth bags made by underprivileged women. Under the project, vocational training (stitching course) is provided to women to bridge the gap between ‘unskilled’ and ‘skilled’.

The purpose of the stall, according to organisers, was raising funds to fulfill the basic requirements of these women. The idea behind the project is to promote women entrepreneurship by providing required vocational training and encouraging them to work. Activities like collection drives for raw material like old clothes and partnerships with organisations such as the UNHCR are being undertaken under the umbrella project.

The stall, decked with bags and kurtis for sale, collected Rs.23,000 in sale revenues.

Ms. Meenu Goswami, Principal of BBPS, Pitampura, appreciated the effort by noting, “It’s always great to work with students who extend beyond themselves”. The president of Enactus CVS feels that owing to this opportunity, the team was able to assess its potential and it fueled its ‘passion for transforming lives, thereby contributing a little towards a sustainable society’.
