Happy to announce that the WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CENTRE (named Sri Atluri Venkateswara Rao Block) at Ambarupeta, Nandigama in NTR dt has commenced operations. The total project cost including working capital is about Rs 75 lakhs.

The centre was established with the objective of uplifting the less privileged and low-skilled local women in the areas of financial independence and nurturing entrepreneurship. This dream became a reality with the magnanimous contributions from Sri Garikapati Subrahmanyam, Prof Vijayalakshmi Atluri, Dr Jayadev Vellanki and M/s Paramount Builders, Jaggayyapeta initially. KEATS profusely thanks organisations from USA – India Development Relief Fund (IDRF), The Forgotten International, EKAM and KEATS-US for their financial support in making the project viable.

After several rounds of discussions with M/s Gourmet Craft Foods, Hyderabad, which is an established player in the food industry, an agreement was entered for manufacture and marketing of spice powders, pickles and ready-to-cook items. Machinery/equipment worth Rs 15 lakhs was procured and installed. Ten local women were employed and the number is likely to be more than doubled once the unit becomes self sustainable. The profits will be utilised to reinvest in replicating similar centres and also shared with the employees.

The products, with KEATS logo, are already on the racks of Vijetha Super Market, Q – Mart, Palem Organics etc. KEATS reserves the right to white-labelling and direct sales of general products. We seek your support for our products which are also available online. Pl visit …
