Ensure to come here at least once during your Kolkata visit. The place is not grand, neither has any historical significance to it, yet it charms lies in its ambition. It is a small training centre with an aim to empower the women from the slums by providing them their own means of earning. The women who come here are trained for different kind of works including textiles, embroidery and leather goods. These goods are later sold in the market. An easily missed destination given its placement- beneath a domestic residence, the place reflects the spirit and strength of Kolkata’s people and their progressive instance.
