Carrier: Women Employment House
Women Employment House’ is a platform for connecting skilled women in need who can work from home, with employers who want to outsource handmade production. Offered service is primarily for housewives who cannot work outside from home, are non-educated, without a husband, with family in need of care, and skilled in some handcrafts (cooking, bakery, knitting, sewing etc.). On the other hand, there are the persons, companies, sellers who require a handmade process in their production. ‘Women Employment House’ is a connecting base between the two parts.
The platform has two facets: The physical aspect (project team and the collaborates) searches low-income districts to find women fitting these conditions and register them according to their regions and skills. The digital aspect (website and application) makes available easy access for employers to contact these women and organizes secure payment.
This is how it works: As the employer puts in the job definition, women with matching qualifications are presented. If the women accepts the job, the payment is taken to the platform’s pool account and the connection is made. All the materials and directives are supplied to the women by the employers. When the job is done, the payment is transferred to the women.
The employer pays an additional service fee to the platform. Through this income model the platform is granted sustainability. This way, while employers can easily outsource handmade workforce, the women receives a chance to earn an income within their natural environment.
This system is a sustainable model that contributes to women employment, lifts general public weight from the government, revives handmade production and provides employers easy-access to a service they require. The project can be developed with trainings, and can be applied to districts, cities and countries with similar conditions.
The short term goal is to empower women in need by ensuring a path of income that is compatible to their lifestyles. In long term, it is possible that this model has effects as: increasing prevalence of handcrafts in production, decreasing level of poverty in general public, increasing level of gender equity and eventually increasing peace in society.
