    International Day of Rural Women

    The United Nations International Day of Rural Women celebrates and honors women and girls living in rural areas on 15 October each year. It recognizes the huge role that rural mothers, daughters, and grandmothers play in producing food, and building agricultural and rural development worldwide.

    Women on Wings is on a mission to create livelihood opportunities for women in rural India. Together with its business partners, Women on Wings aims to create one million jobs for women in rural India. A job means an income, economic autonomy, and an escape from the cycle of poverty. Research shows that women spend their income on their families. Children can go to school, which increases their chances of a better future.

    Watch this video to know the impact Women on Wings is creating in the lives of rural India:

    Kalanjali is an annual solo exhibition organized during Navratri by Sahaj in Vadodara. This exhibition which started 20 years back has taken a shape of a movement. Our customer, friends and well wisher eagerly wait for the event.

    For Sahaj, this is not just an event. This is an opportunity for us to interact with customers, get reviews, feedback, suggestions on products. We have constantly received the love and support from the community.

    Kalanjali is a huge motivation for our women artisans who are in Dahod. Their handmade craft products are sold and liked by many from the urban areas. For these women artisans, preparing for Kalanjali is a matter of pride & self-respect and each product sold is a personal satisfaction for them.

    Over the years we have made the products in Apperal, Life style and aceesories, Home decoration and Stationery and utilities.

    Write a to-do list that works

    If you are like most people, you have got some tasks on your to-do list that you just dread tackling.
    If tasks seem overwhelming, it’s usually because you are looking at them as whole projects, rather than individual tasks.  

    To create an approachable to-do list, break each project down into bite-size, easy to complete actions.
    For example, planning a launch meeting consists of small tasks like emailing participants and reserving meeting rooms.
    If you write all those small tasks on your to-do list rather than the daunting “organize the launch-event”, you will find them much easier to take care of because each one won’t require much thought at a time. Complete enough of these small tasks and your big project will soon be done.
