At present, AROHA mainly focuses on capacity building and providing sustainable livelihood for the underprivileged rural women in Nagpur.

Some of their ongoing projects include:

  • Cluster Development of Rural Women artisans: The organisation works to give women capacity building skills such as embroidery, tailoring, and zardosi based work in order to sustain a livelihood. Training on products like designer office files, wallets and sling bags is also provided at its Design Development Centre in Nagpur. To create a domestic market for AROHA’s products, the organisation has tied up with a few local vendors to display products designed by women artisans.
  • Self Help Group Promotion and Linkage Programme: AROHA organises women from poor households into Self-Help Groups (SHGs) focused on savings, credit and possible help from the government for financial assistance. They currently have 200 SHGs comprised of 2,500 women and their families. These SHGs now operate independently with very little intervention from AROHA. Some of the women forming a part of SHGs are also a part of the cluster of rural women artisans.
  • Vocational Training: AROHA runs two training centers around Nagpur at Kalmeshwar and Wadi. These centers provide vocational training in tailoring, ari-jardozi, hand printing and various trainings for value addition to fabrics.

In addition to these programmes, they also provide support to women who are victims of domestic violence; training and consultation to SHGs; and participate in various exhibitions to sell products designed by women artisans.
