“Nari Ekta” which means “Women United” was established in 1985 to cater for the specific training needs of women from South East Asia. Nari Ekta is funded by Leeds City Council. The Scheme has gained exemption from the Race Relations Act and the Sex Discrimination Act, which enables us to take only unemployed Ethnic Minority women, as trainees.
