NGO Profile :
Shilpsree Mahila Sewa Samiti (SSMSS) is a women-led society established in 1993 in Lucknow, UP. Its mission is to work for sustainable holistic development of the rural poor, especially women and artisans, by providing quality education, health, family welfare, vocational training, awareness of conservation of environment, and inculcation of values and culture.

Their programmes are:

  • Women Empowerment: With the support of Rural Electrification Corporation (REC), SSMSS runs skill development programmes in stitching, tailoring, and garment making for women in Sitapur and Barabanki districts. Self-Help Groups (SHGs) are formed and linked to banks for financial assistance. On successful completion of the above, selected women are further trained in production and entrepreneurial skills and marketing for livelihood support, and then linked to various institutions for wage employment. Buyers-sellers meets and exhibitions are organised for sale of garments. Distribution of tool kits, awareness of legal rights of women, health camps and exposure visits are also a part of this programme.
  • Skill Development Training: With the support of Functional Vocational Training & Research Society (FVTRS), SSMSS has implemented this project for providing skill development training to school dropouts, illiterate, and unemployed women, and those belonging to families falling below the poverty line for generating sustainable income options. The project envisages imparting training in garment making, chikan and zardosi work to the women beneficiaries. They are also advised on packaging, labelling, branding, costing, etc.
  • Leadership Development Programme: SSMSS participates in the Nai Roshni programme which is a government initiative for women empowerment. It focuses on women belonging to the minorities who are deprived of basic government facilities due to illiteracy, poverty, and ignorance. It motivates these women to participate in various social and development activities for their growth. The topics covered are health & hygiene, home management, life skills, leadership quality, etc.
  • Running of Production Units: With the support of SEWA THDC (GOI), SSMSS runs production units of readymade garments. Currently, 950 skilled women are producing garments and involved in cutting, tailoring, and chikan garments trade. The unit operates based on assignments received.
