Walmart Foundation, the CSR arm of world’s largest retailer, on Tuesday announced training of more than 12,000 women in 30 factories across three states — Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat — while another 12,500 will be trained before 2016. The programme, “Women in Factories”, was launched in the country with Swasti Health Resource Centre in 2012.

Nancy Kielty, vice-president, global sourcing, Walmart, said: “We are committed to the communities and people in our supply chain, so it is important to us that this training is helping to empower women around the world.”

The US-based retail giant offers this programme under its larger Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) Initiative, which aims to train nearly one million women and increase sourcing from women. Walmart Foundation has contributed more than $79 million in grants toward programmes to empower women.
