Welspun is firmly committed to the empowerment of women, focusing on providing them training that will enable them to earn a livelihood and be self-sufficient.
Welspun pioneered Mission Mangalam Scheme with the Gujarat Government. Currently there are three Sakhi Swarnim Centers being run in Varsamedi, Dudhai and Bhadreshwar. This initiative widens their livelihood options by building capacities and providing training to rural women. All those trained under the scheme are provided a means of earning a livelihood, which has enhanced their esteem, confidence and most importantly the family’s economic standards.
Welspun India Ltd, (WIL) Vapi has adopted an ITI in Vansda, District, Navsari under the Central Government Scheme of “ITI upgradation by Public-Private Partnership”. It has introduced three new trades i.e. Spinning, Weaving and Cutting & Sewing where training is imparted by professors from MS University, Vadodara and at WIL, Vapi. Successful students are absorbed in WIL.
Welspun has also been at the forefront of initiatives to enhance the levels of health care of all the communities in close proximity to our plants, with a particular emphasis on dedicated facilities for women and children. We have set up health centres on our own as well as collaborated with ongoing projects being run by the government and other social institutions. Welspun’s health centres, which provide subsidised or free care to the needy, are a boon to the underprivileged populations in the villages surrounding our projects.
