Disha was started as part of the Tata Tea Wives Welfare Association in 1984. It provides direction and fulfilment to the wives of all the staff working in the tea plantations of Munnar. The primary objective of forming this was:
- To promote the economic interest of its members
- To encourage self-help among its members
- To make laundry bags and raincoats
- To share knowledge and improve the quality of work
Presently, there are fifteen ladies with Disha who are involved in the supply of laundry bags to the Taj Group of Hotels. The ambience in the unit is of one big happy family with a lot of laughter and cheer among the ladies.
