Sewa conducted surveys to identify COVID-impacted women and started the SHE-CAF program to create livelihood opportunities through skill development training to help these women earn a livelihood. In the first phase of this program, Sewa provided career training to 2200 women from rural, tribal, and urban areas in 15 Indian states. In the next phase, Sewa is training over 3,000 women.
Once these women complete their 3-6 months-long course, Sewa provides them with market linkages and job placement support. Sewa also organizes confidence-building sessions to help these women to be self-employed.
