The Women's Training and Empowerment Centre in Keru, India, is a very special place.  Managed by His Highness Maharaja Hanwant Singhji Charitable Trust, it is a place where village women can come to learn basic life skills and also vocational skills, such as sewing and embroidery.  These beautiful women make many of Elevita's drawstring bags.  For many of the women, sewing for Elevita is the first economic opportunity they have ever had, and the money they earn gives them increased opportunity in their homes and in the village.  The Centre shares the site for which Elevita is helping raise funds to build a hostel, so that girls from the surrounding rural areas can come and attend secondary school.  Once the hostel is built, the women at the Centre will be able to assist and watch over the school girls, and the school girls can in turn learn skills from the women at the Centre.  This is a wonderful institution that Elevita is very proud to support.
