IAS batch 2014 visits Grihini

IAS(P)batch visited Grihini as part of their nation wide tour to study CSR  activities undertaken by the Tata Group.

IAS Batch 2014 visits Grihini

A team of 19 IAS officers visited Gihini on 7th Feb, to get a glimpse into the kind of work done by Tata Motors in promoting women’s welfare. The one hour visit consisted of a formal introduction to the evolution of Grihini from a 7 women organisation into a sustainable social enterprise. The team visited the Shivankala (Tailoring unit) and the Vividh karyakari (Food and spices) units of Grihini located at Tata Motors Colony, Pimpri.

Grihini also sells its products though a retail store located at the colony. The team shopped enthusiastically and appreciated the products that were on offer. We were thrilled to see the response we received from them. True to themselves, the young leaders offered some kind words of appreciation and motivated the Grihini members to take their work to the masses.

“This is a very good and wonderful initiative which nobody provide economic independence to women but also provide confidence and sense of pride in themselves.”  - Priyanka Niranjal

“They have done excellent job in bringing home made eatable to market.  All the best.” – Jeenan B

Tata Motors Grihini thanks the IAS batch of 2014 for taking time out to visit  and motivate us.
