Going beyond just educating underprivileged children, OM Foundation also believes in supporting the families and communities of the OM School students. Towards this the Foundation has initiated several programs to impart livelihood skill sets to underprivileged women.

The idea of initiating this program came into existence after interacting with the families of OM Foundation School students during the academic admission. It has been observed that the most of the families have the male members as their only bread earners and the female members have to depend on them because they do not possess the requisite skill sets to work and earn. Hence this kind of families where monthly income is not more than Rs 8000 per month finds very hard to earn their daily living.

The objective of these programs is to help the women become self-reliant and be able to support their families. Since these women will be able to support their children, the program also hopes to bring down child labor. The success of this program will also stop girls and women from being dragged into illegal activities.

The key skills sets that women are learning under this program:

The sewing and tailoring program is affiliated with USHA Sewing School. OM Foundation has successfully trained more than 300 ladies till the time and new beneficiaries are continuously being added up. The Foundation has helped some of the women to start self help group and their own ventures. The Foundation also provides a production facility at the school premises where the women in self help group are generating income by working on the orders provided by the Foundation.
