The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.


We, at Connecting Smiles Foundation, truly believe in a woman’s ability to become the harbinger of change.
A woman empowered causes a ripple effect that can potentially transform entire communities.
And what better occasion than the International Women’s Day, to roll out our plans for these changemakers?
As a part of “Project Pehel” – our latest outreach and empowerment initiative – we will inaugurate our first training centre on March 8, 2022 – The International Women’s Day. At this centre, we aim to train women of low-income groups to become beauticians. They will train under experienced instructors on various aspects of hair and beauty care and grooming. Apart from the core training, the courses will be rounded off with soft skills training for these ladies to be completely job ready within six months. At the end of their training, we will assist them with placement in companies like UrbanCompany and Get Look. It costs about Rs. 20,000 to train one girl and place her in a job with an earning potential of Rs. 15,000 to 18,000 per month.
As always, we seek your active support for our initiative to help these ladies gain a firm foothold from which they can take on life. In doing this, we are not just helping one woman, but enabling families and communities to not just survive, but thrive. To quote Helen Keller “alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
