WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

          

The youth comprises over one-third of the Indian population which in turn constitutes a major part of the labour force of the country. The number of underprivileged youth in India who lacks education and proper guidance is so huge that according to the reports of the Financial Express "Only 15%of the young graduates passing out of colleges are employable; the rest are branded 'unemployable'."

It is not their lack of theoretical knowledge that causes this. Instead, it is the lack of the right skills and attitude. There is thus, increasing concern among the leading employers of the country, about the dearth of ready-to-deliver employees.

In addition, the macro perspective affirms that it is crucial for the energy of the underprivileged youth to be channelized properly with proper direction to aid economic growth and nation building to elude their addition to family woes, social stress and national misery.


WOMEN EMPOWERMENT IN INDIA


Various studies, as well as our experience, have shown that when we work towards women empowerment, the whole society benefits. But unfortunately, in India, far from empowering women, most are denied even their basic rights like health, education of girls for women empowerment, employment and a respectable status in society.

WHAT WE DID ?



0ver 60,000 women and girl children were benefitted and empowered through various interventions under our programme
More than 7500 girls and women received health care support at their door step. Many more were provided with adequate knowledge of reproductive and sexual health issues.
           
Over 100 women and adolescent girls were trained to be “change agents” to further serve as Community Health Educators, Health Volunteers and Peer Educators in their communities.
Educational support was provided to 555 underprivileged girls for secondary and senior secondary education through full scholarships.



Inspiring Stories From Ground




NEETU


“I’’ll take my mother on a vacation after I get a job. She has never been on one.” Parul’s mother does labour work at construction sites with her husband. She works just as hard, but gets paid only half of what her husband earns. It was with these meagre wages that she started sending her daughter to school, even though her husband was completely against the idea.
