Fair and Lovely Foundation has involved leading personalities in each of these areas to conduct the training courses and has also arranged for all necessary facilities and logistical support to ensure a learning environment of high standards. After the training, the participating women said they feel empowered to start their own business to improve their own lives as well as become a valuable source of support for other women as well.
