Women’s Day Week: A creative framework for enhancing engagement and self-employment  

Women’s Day is a special event for Godrej Salon-i, and every year we organise various activities at our centres to celebrate, remember, and cherish the struggles we all go through and understand the broader significance of the day. Continuing the same spirit, we celebrated 'Women's Day Week' with a variety of engaging and community-led activities to encourage the creative, learning, and competitive spirit among women. This year, Salon-I team spent the day visiting the centres and spending time with the girls to understand their hopes and aspirations. We organised two interesting activities as a contest – ‘Hamara Learning Center Kaisa ho’ and ‘Makeup Carnival’.

We asked our centre students to show their creativity and create models or posters around the ‘Hamara Learning Center Kaisa Ho’ topic. Their energy, dedication, and team spirit were genuinely inspiring as they made appliques, paper models along with fantastic artwork. In the second contest, the alumni of Yuva and SAATH centres in Mumbai and Ahmadabad participated in a makeup carnival and set up their stalls. With this activity, we wanted to bring in more employability option by asking them to create their stalls and generate revenue as a pre-cursor to their journey of self-employment. We also organised the 'Best Bridal Makeup’ contest with Beautypreneurs on our Facebook page. Overall in three days, the team visited 60 Salon-i centres across three states and interacted with over 2000 girls and alumni. It was a humbling and enriching experience for everyone in the team.
