Working with underprivileged and marginalized rural women
Empowering women is essential for any society to ensure the sustainable development of the country. Gender equality and women empowerment is pertinent for socio-economic development, environment protection. It’s about giving women equal socio-political rights, economic stability and judicial strength. Women should know their fundamental and social rights. Without the equal inclusion of women in development, women would not be able to benefit or contribute to the development of the country. At WOMENforINDIA we understand this and thus we have formed a forum of women who have taken on themselves to train the aspiring entrepreneurs, rural women, artisans to live their dreams.
We work with underprivileged and marginalized women in rural areas. We aspire women communities to build a livelihood for them by motivating, guiding, consulting, funding their ideas, providing required knowledge & support and by landholding them through different entrepreneurial issues, Skilling them on making LEDs, solar lamps, stitching, khadi etc to earn a living for themselves. Girl education, maternal & child healthcare are an important part of this initiative. Women from diverse backgrounds like academicians, IT, Finance, social and business entrepreneurs, media and communication, homemakers and students are a part of this initiative. We work with women at the grass root level and educate them on major issues.
#WomenEmpowerIndia is a community of Indian women entrepreneurs from different parts of the country which help women to realize their true potential. WFI is an ecosystem which empowers women by fostering their innovative non-profit ideas for social work as well as business propositions.
