Women's Collective Launches Two Brands on the Occasion of International Women's Day

As a community, we recognize and celebrate the immense power of women in building resilient and thriving communities. Our top priority has always been to empower women and enable them to be self-reliant, independent and confident. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we catalyze Self Help Groups (SHGs), Entrepreneurial Networks (WEN), and promote simple income-generating ideas.

Through our efforts, these SHGs and businesses have grown exponentially, with women driving small businesses specializing in handicrafts, up-cycled bags, apparels, home-cooked meals, and traditional snacks. In honor of International Women's Day on March 9, 2023, we celebrated the accomplishments of these incredible women by hosting a launch event of their business brands, Sangini and Kalamaitri, in our community center at Forbes Marshall.

Chaitanya, an NGO working for the empowerment of women with support from Forbes Marshall, has been instrumental in helping these women entrepreneurs build their brands. Our community center hosted several stalls selling ready-to-eat products, handcrafted clothes, and jewelry, and we were thrilled to receive an overwhelming response from our Forbes Marshall members. The products were sold out in no time, demonstrating the tremendous potential of women to create successful businesses and make a positive impact in our communities.
