Vadodara (Gujarat), November 2020: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) Vadodara organized training sessions on ‘Spice Making’ for women from various slums of Vadodara.

Mrs Prabhavati and Mrs Deepaben were the resource persons for these training sessions. They taught 17 different types of spice making which included: Undhiya Masala, Dabeli Masala, Pavbhaji Masala, Biryani Masala, Mutton Masala, Chole Masala, Garam Masala, Sambhar Masala, Chat Masala, Tea Masala, Malvani Masala, Fish Masala, Punjabi Masala, Panipuri Masala, Chicken Tandoori Masala, Kolhapuri Masala and Chicken Masala. Further they were also trained in costing, budgeting, branding and marketing.

These trainings were followed by follow-up sessions in November 2020 to track the progress of women and to understand and resolve the problems and issues faced by women. 14 women participated in these sessions. One of the frequent problem observed during these follow-up session was that women are more concerned about failure and not doing well. They have low risk appetite and fear from starting up.

A ‘Spice Sale’ promotional event was held in September 2020 in Rajiv Nagar to provide them a platform to sell the spice products made by them. The commuters on the road and people from the nearby areas purchased the spices at a very competitive price. The women had a very good experience selling the spices and also made good profit on the sale. They also obtained few orders to deliver these products at their home.

This project is financially supported by Mix for Kids (Germany)
