Br Cl. Jittin Mathew for BISMumbai

The Don Bosco Suraksha, Pune, celebrated a farewell cum certification ceremony for the first batch of the Beautician Course at Don Bosco Youth Centre, Pune, on 21 June 2022.

Around 42 women and young girls from the neighbouring bastis, received training in threading, makeup, facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and hair styling, as well as the newest hair styling and colouring methods, over the course of a two-month programme arranged by the Don Bosco Suraksha team.

The aim of this course was to equip the participants to be self-employed and earn their living. Many of the participants are maids who come from very low socio-economic backgrounds. With these skills, they have an option to pursue new endeavours and achieve financial stability.

Women empowerment is the need of the hour and Don Bosco Suraksha is doing its best to empower women with skills in order to achieve monetary security.
