The next time you see a woman instructing labourers at a construction site or giving ideas about the basic layout of a home, don’t be surprised. Supported by the state government, corporate houses and NGOs are training women in tribal belts of Gujarat for masonry work.
Most of the construction labourers in Gujarat belong to the tribal community. Hence, the tribal district of Dahod was selected for the pilot project of masonry training.
For women it is an opportunity to be competent and share their family responsibilities . . .
