  • Women & Child Development

Women and girls in India are born into a social and cultural system steeped in inequity and discrimination. They receive an unfair share of opportunities, attention and resources from the moment of their conception. Females are expected to perform largely reproductive functions. Gender differential treatment and discriminatory practices also places females at a higher risk of violations of all kinds and make them socially, economically and emotionally dependent on men in the family. Manifestations of discrimination against women, in India, are also mediated by factors such as their education level, earning status, caste, etc.
Women and child development programmes of the organization are envisaged and conducted to build/strengthen their capacity in a wholesome manner. Other than female specific programmes, the organization consciously targets women/girls in its programmes be it education & literacy, health projects or skill development/capacity building trainings.
