The SEWA Manager Ni School (SMS) was founded in 2005 to address the institutional needs of the growing number of laborers and rural women within the organization. In order to create alternative forms of employment to focus on SEWA's basic objectives, SMS strives to create full employment and self-reliance for SEWA members. In order to enhance the collective strength of its members, SMS helps creates economic organizations among members, instilling pride and building capacity through the means of training. SMS provides institutional capacity to the next generation of SEWA managers to compete in this era of globalization and increased market competitiveness.
Based in Ahmedabad, SMS has trained thousands of women community and business leaders. SMS serves as a managerial capacity building institution that promotes economic self-sustainability by training grassroots managers. These managers are selected by their peers, ensuring the high level of respect, accountability, and ownership of their efforts. SMS partners with a number of local and worldwide organizations, including the Indian Institute of Management and the World Bank for many of its efforts.
