Women empowerment in India is dependent up to a great extent on numerous different variables that encompass geographical setting (urban/rural), social status (caste and class), educational status, and age factor. Actions on women empowerment exist at the state, local (panchayat), and national levels. However, women encounter differentiation in most sectors like education, economic opportunities, health and medical assistance, where we try to fill the gap.
We have several programs related to skilling and educating women in different domains. Our major success has been educating the women in menstrual health and use of organic sanitary pads, where the women are taught packaging and selling of our brand of sanitary napkins named ‘Stree’. Other skilling programs include Healthy Cooking classes, tailoring and stitching, along with literacy of the digital and financial world, where we teach women the importance and uses of a smartphone, which can benefit their micro ventures in the long run.
