AZMAT, meaning glory through achievement, centres endeavour to engage the poor - especially women - in productive activities through SPRAT-assisted micro economic enterprises.
The scheme aims at equipping potential workers with adequate skills, providing basic techno-managerial inputs and starting credit to start small self-sustainable, viable units harnessing locally available raw material and exploring easily accessible markets. The units will guarantee a small daily wage even while promoting workers to entrepreneurs.
Additionally, AZMAT centres will provide supra-religious platforms on which to interact with fellow entrepreneurs, creating an alternative, secular frame of reference and identities.
SPRAT adjudged the best Small NGO of Western India, and one of the 13 best, all India, by the Resource Alliance - Nand and Jeet Khemka Foundation for 2007.
