"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Girls from PRC working in the switch assembly unit

 

  Summary

 

 

Prerana Resource Centers main revenue comes from the electrical switch assembly unit. ABB trained the girls of PRC and also helped to setup the assembly unit. They only can supply to ABB. Due to reduction in the manufacturing at ABB, demand for switch has also dropped. So, PRC is looking into different ways of revenue generation. They are thinking of running laundry service in their premises. This proposal is for funding two industrial washing machines.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

Funds are yet to be sent. Once the funds are sent and washing machines start spinning, we should have some report from them. Achievements of the PRC is listed in the NGO page. This section will be updated later

 

  Goals

 

 

They intend to run a full fledged laundry service mainly serving Guest house of ABB. They will also be serving other customers. Amount billed to customers (including ABB) will also pay for electricity and water. In this way, they will have one more way of generating some income and self sustain.
