We have been working with women from the slums of Saharanpur since 2005. We began with skill training of slum women in chunari (red embellished fabric used in ceremonies in temples of N. India). Saharanpur is a major center for the chunari trade, being a gateway to the temple towns in UP and Uttarakhand. Some of the women trained by us have become 'chunari entrepreneurs' and have established their home-based businesses. However, the major thrust over the last two years in the area has been to establish child-care services as enterprises owned and operated by the Udyogini-created producer brand, UJAS. UJAS is registered in UP as a Society as in MP and Rajasthan and is now successfully running 32 creches for the children in the slums of Saharanpur. The management support given by UJAS for the crèches is financed by parents' fees. Linkage has also been made for medical and life insurance to be provided on a commission-basis so that the crèche teachers can earn additional income while providing value-added services to parents and other poor people in the slums.
