In order to alleviate poverty and enable women to take charge of their family by shouldering economic responsibilities of their family, we engage with the women from the economically vulnerable groups. Our skill development model has been designed to make the women as the central force in the economic upliftment of her family, as an empowering woman helps entire family to transform their livelihood. This will createwin-win situation for the skilled women as well as the industry as Wardwizard Group companies as well as industry peers will get untapped skilled resources, while women will get economic self-reliance.
In regard to diminish the poverty for the under-privileged, we would start food vans that would feed the poor, the needy and homeless people with nutritious food at bear minimum cost and serve as an agent of God to fulfil their basic food needs. Thus, with this our motive to the society will be no one should sleep without food.
