The Mission to Empower Rural Women: Sewing Machines for Poor Women (SM4PW) campaign is part of making poor rural women financially independent. This was initiated by Dr. Sree Padma, Ph.D., affiliated with Asha-Jyothi to uplift women financially and provide an opportunity for a better quality of life. This was part of an extensive campaign involving NGO (Mylavaram, Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh), and the Mother Theresa Charitable Trust.

Under the SM4PW campaign in coordination with Asha Jyoti, the Trust helped 40 trained women in the village Badava in Mylavaram Mandalam to buy 20 sewing machines with a cost of $2102
