“Best out of Waste” – A workshop for underprivileged adolescent girls
October 23, 2010 @ 8:00 am - October 25, 2010 @ 5:00 pm
A workshop for creating art and craft was organized for the underprivileged girls and women of the Swbhiman intervention areas. This workshop was conducted by Swatantra Rang, a group that is famous for Recycling and Waste Management workshops with the less privileged people. Their workshops are known to be innovative and bring something new every time.
The workshop conducted for the Swabhiman girls consists of Art and Craft activities such as Painting, Sketching, Drawing and making something innovative from waste materials. It included making of Flower Vases and Photo Frames from waste material. 19 girls had taken part in this workshop.
The products made in the Workshop will be showcased in exhibitions organised by Smile Foundation and other institutes and corporates. Art and craft learnt in this Workshop has also given a new sense of confidence and creativity to the underprivileged girls and women from the slums. They will now be able to utilize this art in their personal lives, as well as to start a small venture of their own. These efforts would lead the beneficiaries of Smile Foundation towards the road of empowerment.
