FICCI Ladies Organization (FLO) has planed to set up two Mahila Huts in Gujarat. These centres will help in the upliftment of women belonging to all sections of the society through education and training.
FLO is the women wing of the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) which encourages and facilitate women to showcase their talents, skills, experiences and energies across sectors. It was established in 1983 and headquarter in Delhi. FLO presently represents over 400 women entrepreneurs and professionals.
The organization Chairperson Roopa Patel said that the company plans to setup the ‘Mahila Hut’ at Vadodara and Ahmedabad in Gujarat. For the project the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has already agreed to give a plot to FLO for setting up a hut and the work will begin soon.
These huts will focus on empowering the girl-child and women at the grass-root level through education and training. The project will also provide the quality training programme for women in non-traditional jobs and support young women entrepreneurs through skill development.
She also stated that the Gujarat unit of FLO will also construct women’s toilets in primary schools in rural areas of state.
So now lets discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the organization which has planned to set up the two centres in Gujarat ?
2. FLO is the women wing of which government apex body ?
3. Name the two cities in which FLO has planned to setup the centres ( Mahila Huts ) ?
