A wise man once said,
“If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a generation”.
Substantiating the above quote is an initiative taken by the BUZZ INDIA which is an organisation, working towards educating women folk and empowering them.
The organization travels with a classroom in a bus to rural India. It was launched on 8 February 2013 at the Press Club. Their mission is to educate women in rural areas, help them to come out of poverty and achieve their ambitions and dreams.
Mr.Jaikumar Chandrashekar, Managing Director, said “Our name is our goal, we want to create a better future by inspiring leaders to change the world. Our initiative with the Buzz Bus is to inspire women entrepreneurs at the bottom of the pyramid towards a better future for themselves and their communities. We believe that the women have the potential and the ambition to achieve their dreams. Through the Buzz bus, our intention is to support those dreams.”
Their will and belief helped over 20,000 low income women in the last five years.
Let us look at some of the Success story of BUZZ INDIA.
According to Buzz India, Rajeshwari, is the fastest entrepreneur they have seen till date. She wanted to do a long distance job in her nearby village as a data entry operator. She wasn’t happy about the decision because the salary promised to her was just pittance. She decided to attend the training given by Buzz India in order to overcome this problem. Ashwini, the Buzz Trainer, was explaining women to start their own enterprises, however small they might be. This inspired Rajeswari not to take up the job but start her own business. She now earns ₹500 from her snacks business in addition to the income that her family petty shop brings. This happened during the first week of her training.
Haseena, a 36 year old lady runs a small hotel in her village. Initially she had lot of troubles relating to her house debts. She sold her house, got rid of all her debts and started her own hotel. The training motivated her and she learnt how to save money. From whatever she is earning, she reinvestes in her business little by little.
The BUZZ INDIA aims to reach 1 million women by 2025. Their training inspires thousands of households to come forward and start a business. These women have become an ambassador of change. A change that has helped their family to overcome their financial problem, A change that generates confidence in growing their business. A change that will eventually change INDIA.
