PROJECT GUNI BAHU


Genesis of Project Guni Bahu

Project Guni Bahu was conceived and launched on 15 June 2011 by Sun Shine – A Ray of Hope (SSROH) to promote make women capable of self sustenance and self dependency to uplift their social status. Women from poor family with no or negligible source of income were motivated to come forward to utilize their skills to financially support their families. This step has given a new dimension to housewives in the society, where they only did daily household chores. Now they can proudly claim to be woman of substance. This is exactly what we call - Mahila Shakti.
