Women Empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, awareness, literacy, and training. It is all about equipping and allowing women to make life-determining decisions through the different problems in society.
In India, a total of 3,09,546 cases of crime against women (both under various sections of IPC and SLL) were reported in the country during the year 2013. Over 120,000 women a year suffer domestic violence, over 1,25,000 cases of physical and mental assault and many more.
We believe that education is the key to drastically reducing these figures and our efforts towards this have made a huge impact. Education plays a critical role in Women’s Economic Empowerment. It takes the center stage. But for long, most women especially in the rural areas have been denied this right and have been subjected to very degrading practices and responsibilities. Education empowers girls to achieve more in their social, career, economic and family lives. To women, education can mean going to class or being trained on capacity building and skills development or better yet being mentored on very essential aspects. That said, we believe that denying education to women and girls not only hinders equality and fairness but also hinders the economic growth of our society. Let’s educate women.
