Kerala has a high female literacy rate of 86.2%, a low infant mortality rate 6 in 2017 against the national average of 40, favourable sex ratio of 1084 female/1000 male, low maternal mortality rate 0.8/1000 and a high life expectancy of 74 female/70 male. However, the absence of women in the public domain remains as a paradox of the Kerala model of development. The economic marginalization of women in the development process has drawn considerable attention during recent years. While the female work participation rate in India increased from 19.7% to 22.7% between 1981 and 1991, in Kerala the ratio declined from 16.6% to 15.9% during the same period. The incidence of unemployment among females in the State is higher than that among males by 5 times in rural areas and 3 times in urban areas. Unemployment in Kerala is severe and is estimated to be 3 times larger than of India. To full fill the gaps and address these concerns KUDUMBASHREE has made its first major foray in facility management market by establishing of its own FACILITY MANAGEMENT CENTER targeting at providing facility management services to major public and private sector companies. The prestigious urban transport giant, Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) has become its first first client. Later it has added Vytila Mobility, Kerala largest bus station to its a client list. Kudumbashree Facility Management Center has today become of an epicenter for providing employment for women by so far providing 930 women employed with its clients. With the focus on new trends of facility management industry and adopting the new standards of human resources management, Kudumbashree facility management is now poised for a growth with more and more clients asking for its services.
