Women are bearing enormous hardship from the ancient time in India. There are many private and government organizations and institutions supporting women empowerment, promoting policy making, promoting gender-sensitive data collection, improving women’s health awareness and expanding their independency in the life. Despite such supports and human rights, women are still dependent, poor, unhealthy and illiterate. We need to think the reasons behind and solve all on immediate basis. And that’s what we do. We think of instant solution and implement instantly in support of Girl starting from her education to her career and skill development and many more.

The lack of safe working conditions, social security benefits, and a fair wage that can only be paid by formal sector employers with high productivity and output ratios, induces women to opt out of employment unless critical for their basic sustenance as the incremental economic and societal benefit for them to remain a part of the workforce is very suboptimal in most cases.

To take their rightful place within Indian workforce and society at large, our women need lot more formal sector employment opportunities with better wages. And this cannot happen till formal sector employment grows in its own right.

It has been known worldwide that women continue to bear the major share of household work and childcare. The women are expected to invest more in child’s education over professional achievement thereby surfacing the skewed work-family equation. However, this highlights the contrasting situations in west; there is decline in fertility rates because women prefer to opt out of marriages for better employment prospects whereas here, children’s future achievements take the front seat instead of career development. This has led to urban and educat4ed Indian women dropping out of the labor pool. Neither of these, however, seems an optimal outcome for society. The only thing that can address this issue is by encouraging workplaces to become more responsive to family needs and to promote sharing of household responsibilities between both the genders.

“Girls’ education is about so much more than knowledge. By ensuring that a girl has equal access to education, employment and adequate health care, the benefits will be passed on to her children (both boys and girls), community and her country.”

Many of us take our education for granted. We do not appreciate what it affords us. But imagine if you weren’t lucky enough to receive an education. Where would you be? Receiving an education empowers girls to take control of their lives, their families, and their future. Girls with dreams become women with vision – let’s create a world where this vision runs wild and free. Join us to educate the girl child to educate the world.

It is a common thing to observe that women are unable to complete their studies or do not get proper jobs or lack in skills, which lead to their deteriorating financial condition, they are dependent on others or they are unable to support their families. By providing vocational training to the girls and women, we can help them a step further so that they could do things on their own and earn their bread. With the vocational training, women can get economically empowered even when they do not have any proper job.

They can start their businesses, they can make and sell things from home, they can get jobs in manufacturing units, etc. There are many training sessions conduct online and offline as well so women, who are working from home or working online, can enhance their skills. Let’s plan that how can we do more to provide an easy access to the vocational training and which NGOs or firms are offering them in your regions.

Economic empowerment is the capacity of women and men to participate in, contribute to and benefit from growth processes in ways that recognize the value of their contributions, respect their dignity and make it possible to negotiate a fairer distribution of the benefits of growth. Economic empowerment increases women’s access to economic resources and opportunities including jobs, financial services, property and other productive assets, skills development and market information. We provide a platform in which the experts share their knowledge for the economic betterment and economic independence of the women who reach us.
