Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management conducted an entrepreneurial workshop for 15 under-privileged ladies as part of their contribution to the Skill India Movement launched by the Indian government. Through this endeavour, Lexicon IHM want to help these women learn a skill which can be a source of income for them and their families.
During the workshop, the participants were introduced to the techniques and ingredients involved in making various delectable Indian sweets like Chocolate Modak, Pineapple Sheera, Dry fruit Modak & Coconut instant Modak etc. Along with the art of learning to make modaks, the women also learned concepts of managing the products, pricing, procurement etc.
“The innovative preparations and packaging of traditional sweets will definitely empower these women to think of creative methods of supplementing their incomes. I am sure skilling workshops like these will kindle the fire of entrepreneurship amongst the attendees”, said Gladvin Rego, Principal, Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management
This initiative by the Lexicon Institute of Hotel Management is a way to support underprivileged women with skills and knowledge that can help them to become their own masters, leading to improved livelihoods and enhance their quality of life. In this workshop it was seen that most of these women have a lot of unexplored talent and potential and with some support they can give a new direction to their lives.
