Homefoodi India's Biggest Women Self EmploymentApplication
New Delhi, 06 March 2020:A self-employed society empowers every Household to spend more on Education and Health which increases the prosperity and Harmony of a Country. When more Households engage in self-employment opportunities, it propels the economic growth of a Nation by creating a multiplier of employment opportunities for others and an increase in quality of life for everybody. A progressive Country is the one that provides gainful self-employment that generates economic prosperity and an ability for millions of Households to deal with economic Shocks.
It is therefore important that self-employment should be considered the Biggest and Most important indicator for a prosperous economy. In a rapidly changing world of technology, it is imperative for every Leader to support technology platforms that have the ability to generate meaningful and large-scale self-employment opportunities. In Today’s World, Innovate and Collaborative Technologies are the only Solutions to create Large Scale Self Employment for every Household.
Despite considerable economic progress in India, the gap in gender participation between men and women still remains large. In other words, adding more women to the self-employment force can bring huge economic gains for the nation. A large-scale inclusion of Women for self-employment opportunities enabled through simplified technology can be the Biggest Disruption in India to evangelize Economic Prosperity.
Government of India has initiated many self-employment programmes as a policy tool to fight against poverty and social upliftment since independence. Poverty alleviation programmes are classified into self-employment, wage employment, food security and social security programme. As we have progressed as a Nation, different self-employment programmes have been introduced by GOI.
While the Government will continue to take credible steps, Private Sector companies and Start-Up’s can make a lasting difference to Self-Employment. Homefoodi is India’s 1st Mobile Application for Home Food made by Homemakers working from Home.
