WHAT IS RISE?
RISE initiative aims to empower individuals aspiring to make the world a better place through research, innovation, skills and entrepreneurship.
Importance of research based analysis in the generation of new products is given high regard amongst these young entrepreneurs.
This is a platform to hone raw talents and skills and find innovative ways to create sustained livelihoods.
The products in this brochure are an outcome of joint efforts of women who have dedicated their lives to helping those in need and the less fortunate young girls with big dreams.
All that these girls needed was a nudge to stir their entrepreneurial spirit and creativity, to see the various possibilities in spite of constraints and poor resources.
RISE Initiative uses SMAART framework conceptualized by Dr. Ashish Joshi to leverage research driven creativity for sustained employment.
FHTS translates research into practice through use of technology based solutions. FHTS aims to empower, educate and monitor the well-being of individuals, their families and the communities they live in.

My name is Sujanti Devi. I am a housewife. Currently I am working as a CAHD intern at FHTS where I am working for RISE Initiative under CAHD. I came to know about FHTS through Shivani, who is also working in CAHD with me. She told me that as I know how to do stitching well; here I can explore more of it. I can here polish my skill and can learn and make new designs. I decided to work here because as I am a housewife all the members of my family go to work and I used to be at home alone. So by coming here I am doing some productive work and now I have a routine to follow which has made me punctual and taught me importance of time management. I want to fulfill the wishes of my children and want to support them. Here I get a very a chance to learn more things as well from my other team members and I am happy I got this opportunity. I am thankful to FHTS and the founder Dr. Ashish Joshi for doing so Dr. Ashish Joshi much for deprived women who doesn’t get enough opportunities to utilize their talent.

My name is Pragati. I am pursuing B.A from Kanpur University. Now I am a Research Intern at FHTS where I am working for Creativity Hub under the RISE LAB. I come to know about this organization through one of my family member who is also working nearby this FHTS office at Bhikaji Cama Place, Delhi itself. He told me that I can learn creativity here then I thought of leaving Kanpur and visiting FHTS. I came here with the expectation of learning art by paying fee but actually I felt surprised after office visit because I have never expected that my talent of painting will give me a platform and most surprising is I am also earning because of my talent. Before FHTS I have never heard about any organization who provide platform to talent. My mother works as a maid servant and do household work at other’s dwelling in Kanpur which I don’t like but I am very younger in age so I have never thought of working and earning in this age. I am greatful to FHTS and the founder Dr. Ashish Joshi who thought of deprived girls and women like me who are full of talent but not having platform. Thanks a million to FHTS and especially to Ashish sir who are working for empowering women by generating employment.
