SEWA Academy's activities are divided into four major categories, namely, training, literacy, research and communication.

 

Training

 

SEWA's trainings are driven by the core belief that everyone has potential and ability but due to adverse circumstances, women in the informal sector are sometimes not able to achieve their goals. Our training programmes are a collective approach to overall development of women and our capacity building programmes cut across all the requirements.

 

 

Literacy

 

The women participating in trainings provided by SEWA Academy were both literate and illiterate, from different areas of city and villages. The illiterate women articulated the words that "We would like to study"! With this SEWA members expressed their aspiration to educate themselves. SEWA memberís enthusiasm led to initiation of Literacy Class in 1992. The members sought education, which was easy to understand and which would help them in life.

 

 

Research

 

Research has played a vital role for SEWA since inception. The main objectives of SEWA's research are to understand the socio-economic conditions & issues of women in informal economy, document history of women's struggles for economic & social security, evaluate SEWA's interventions & campaigns and bring the self employed women to the mainstream of the world of knowledge.

 

 

Communication

 

Communication is a very important aspect of poor self employed women's lives and struggles. There is a continuous need to develop and strengthen communication between members within the SEWA movement, and also between poor women and the world outside. Different media for communication are used by the women, so that they are both seen and heard. The communication tools used are Anasooya, Akashganga, E-newsletter, Video SEWA and Rudi no Radio.
