This project is aimed to create women construction groups in the state who can take up construction of houses, buildings and roads. Three years ago, using CSR funds provided by HUDCO, training was given to 200 women in construction section. As a result of this training, many women started working actively in construction sector as masons/ workers. 5 women grouped themselves and constituted a construction group and at present they have successfully completed construction of more than 70 houses (in Ernakulam District)
Inspired by these enterprising women, and anticipating a huge shortage of labour force in near future because of determined government campaigns of mass housing (LIFE project of government of Kerala), it was decided to give training to women in construction sector so as to form labour contract groups of women entrepreneurs who can take up construction of houses of poor and needy, in addition to taking up bigger projects.
Training on construction activity for Kudumbashree members aims to provide skill training for various trades in the construction industry for enhancing the skill of the women in construction related activities such that a sustainable income is generated. It is envisaged to form one construction group in each development block and in each urban local body.
