Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], October 15 (ANI/PRNewswire): Woxsen University, with a key focus on Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability, has initiated a new project termed as ‘Rural Entrepreneurship’ that aims to uplift the rural community surrounding Woxsen University.
A team formed by Woxsen University students, faculty, and non-academic staff led by Dr Bhairab Chandra, School of Business, initiated the project identifying key areas of concern in the local communities. Lack of knowledge on investment sourcing and difficulty in identification of training methods for their interests have been identified as major issues faced by local communities.
After a detailed discussion between the Rural Entrepreneurship team and the rural community around Woxsen, the areas of interest among the community members have come to their attention. They include – setting up a dairy farm, training to become a professional DJ, opening a General Store and more.
As part of the project, the team has met with a widow who took up tailoring as her profession to run the house and feed her two children. With minimal resources she has, she is providing employment to 6-10 local girls by training them in tailoring with one sewing machine she has at her home. Although a few upgraded machines would make her life easy and can build a business to her, getting a bank loan isn’t easy for them.
