                  Few of Trishul Projects

                  Trishul Women Empowerment Program

                  At Trishul Women Empowerment Program (TWEP), our aim is to support economically less-privileged women from rural areas and urban slums as well as revive traditional art and handicrafts by training and encouraging budding artisans through our skill development programs. 
                  At TWEP, we conduct free skill development workshops on hand embroidery, painting methods such as Madhubani and Warli, basic stitching, and creating home decors, handcrafted jewelry, bags, hand-painted greeting cards, and so on.

                  Livelihood generation program at TWEP:Sales proceeds of our carefully crafted products ensure a steady source of income for the women involved. As Trishul extends the training and support to more and more women, we hope to better the lives of multitudes of families, as empowering a woman means empowering a family. 

                  At TWEP, we also conduct periodic health check-up; mentoring and counselling sessions, yoga, and similar supportive activities. We are also planning to start a daily nutrition program at TWEP and TLC to tackle urban malnutrition, a much-ignored malady.

                  Trishul Learning Center

                  Our objective at Trishul Learning Centre (TLC) is to help children from economically weaker communities in rural areas and urban slums build a strong educational foundation, develop self-esteem, and assimilate  values, which will help them maximise their potential and become economically independent and responsible citizens.

                  At Trishul, we believe education and life skills development are primary stepping stones for children from less-privileged communities to enter the mainstream economy and lead a better-quality life. 
                  At TLC, we provide free learning facility to children, focusing on Math, Science, and English. We blend our coaching with activity-based learning, project work, field trips, arts, crafts, sports and unstructured play to facilitate holistic development of the children. Expert counselling and mentoring sessions on career and personality development are also conducted by visiting faculty.
