Shodho: LD Engineering College students build job portal to uplift rural women of Gujarat

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Taking a step further towards women emancipation and development, a group of students from LD Engineering College, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, has come up with an online portal called ‘Shodho.’ The portal comes with an aim to uplift Gujarati women coming from rural background. ‘Shodho’ will help them find part time jobs in craftworks and stitching.

The website, a product of students Ketakee Nimavat, Akash Choudhary, Aakash Parmar, Shruti Khatri, Vishwa Shah and Lipi Mehta, is the first of its kind in India.The students have approached several companies and cottage industries that provide jobs in the field of art and crafts. They have also asked some NGOs to train these women so that they could be employed to jobs with reasonable pay scale.

One of the creators of the portal, Ketakee Nimavat, told the Times of India, “Called ‘Shodho,’ the portal currently has listed enterprises that provide jobs of stitching, assembling of toys and embroidery. Each enterprise has an account and a profile page with complete details. The portal will display the list of job openings and the pay offered.”

“The portal aims to streamline the complete process involved in the daily small-scale temporary jobs and remove middlemen who pocket most of the money as commission. This will help rural women get the most out of their work,” said Nimavat.

This noble act done by the students of LD college of engineering and Hasmukh Goswami college of Engineering is praise- worthy. ‘Shodho’ would put the women in direct contact with the job providers, which would eradicate the ‘middle- men system,’ who usually eat away the share of these rural women’s earnings.
