Women across the world have been in the frontline to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Across entrepreneurship, education and community development projects of HPPI, women have been contributing to fighting the spread of the coronavirus. Since the lockdown was announced, skills and training centres have also been closed down and beneficiaries from these projects have been working from home and making masks that can be used as protective gear during the pandemic.

In HPPI’s women entrepreneurship programme, Jeevika, in Haryana, Business Sakhis have been stitching masks and have so far distributed 1,150 of these home-made masks in the community.
Two entrepreneurs under the Jeevika Project, Ms Indra and Ms Reena from Dabchana, Rewari, have also received an order to stitch 1,000 face masks for Rs 4 per piece for the company MTF Neemrana.

Similarly, in Nipun Skills Training Program in Gurugram, Haryana, 250 students who were learning to stitch at the Manesar and Khandsa, were days away from completing their 3-month training course and were waiting to start their jobs or own enterprises shortly when the lockdown was announced. Despite their disappointment, the students came together and are now using their skills to contribute towards the need of producing masks, which were in short supply in the area.

The project, supported by Sympany received an order by a local manufacturer to produce 25,000 masks. The Project’s skills teacher continued to give distance education classes through video calls on mobile phones on how to prepare the cloth masks.

The students have made a small profit from this order and have also distributed as many as 500 masks to their family and community members free of cost.

Student-teachers from HPPI’s NeTT Programme as well as staff members and students from the Academy of Working Children Jaipur have also manufactured handmade masks and distributed in the community.
