Birla Carbon Patalganga celebrates International Women’s Day

Patalganga, India – We hosted women from local villages to mark International Women’s Day and promote activities designed to empower women. The celebrations included a session on women’s health and a presentation encouraging the take-up of work experience by the leader of a local nongovernmental organization. We also continued our new school uniform stitching project, which provided training in tailoring skills to women who then made uniforms for female students. We provided special seeds to a kitchen gardening project in the tribal community so they can grow vegetables at home. At the request of district administration, we donated provisions to feed migrant laborers stranded in the area during COVID-19.
