Full employment means employment whereby workers obtain work security, income security, food security and social security (at least health care, child care and shelter). By self-reliance we mean that women should be self reliant, individually and collectively, both economically and in terms of decision-making ability.

SEWA believes that the economic power cannot only be left in the hands of those who have capital or to governments; but workers must also conceive, build and expand their own economic strength by establishing their own economic institutions.

Thus, in SEWA’s strategy the workers do not remain workers but become the owners and managers of their trades and organisations. This is the first step in the self-governance. The women get recognized as workers and producers. This gradually brings self-respect and dignity within the household and in the community.
Through members education trainings the poor women workers will be explained about their contribution to the economy. Awareness will be created about how they should be recognized as workers and producers and how it gradually brings self-respect and dignity within the household and in the community. Awareness meetings will be done with the women members of SEWA including the increasing number of young generation members across the districts and in urban areas of Ahmedabad
