Kudumbashree: Kerala’s all women’s construction company

This is a terrific video by the BBC on the Kudumbashree Construction Companies. “Kudumbashree” is the southern Indian state of Kerala’s mission to wipe out poverty through community action and the empowerment of women. The literal meaning of Kudumbashree is prosperity (shree) of the family (Kudumbam). You can see more on the government policies and projects at http://www.kudumbashree.org/?q=home.

The Archana Women’s Centre in Kottayam is one of the training centers for the Kudumbashree workers. I hope to be there for International Women’s Day 2016.
