Women Empowerment in simple words can be understood as giving power to women to decide for their own lives or inculcating such abilities in them so that they could be able to find their rightful place in the society. Women empowerment is nothing but recognition of women’s basic human rights.
In the simplest of words it is basically the creation of an environment where women can make independent decisions on their personal development as well as shine as equals in society.
Women want to be treated as equals so much, so that if a woman rises to the top of her field, it should be a commonplace occurrence that draws nothing more than a raised eyebrow at the gender. This can only happen if there is a channelized route for the empowerment of women.
Women`s Empowerment Program is initiated to help adolescent girls and poor women in rural areas. The program has its main objectives:
Ensure the health, safety and well being of all women workers.
Promote education, training and Professional development for women.
Promote equality through community initiatives.
Support girls in education.
Educating girls and women about the significance of maintaining menstrual hygiene
To sensitize the entire community as it is very important to start from the base i.e. the family. Men and women in a family should have equal responsibility for maintaining hygiene and sanitation. Under these sessions, parents
Are sensitized on how to maintain personal hygiene, keep their surroundings clean, the importance of having a toilet for the family and teaching the children good habits from early childhood.
HCRO initiated the Vocational Training Project “PRYAAS ” as part of the ongoing community development and rehabilitation program.
The project was aimed at encouraging women and girls from the village to enroll for skill training course in tailoring and sewing, to help them have a dignified and independent livelihood.
This was to provide a sustainable source of income to families who belong to poor backgrounds along with empowering women and older girls with a useful skill set.
More than 50 women enrolled in the first two batches of the vocational training program and successfully completed the course and most of the women who completed their courses have found jobs at tailoring shops and garment manufacturing factories, or have begun their own work from home. There are many others who have joined the program after getting inspired from the success stories of the women who have now become independent, confident and now able to merit a secure and dignified livelihood.
