Women Empowerment Program
About Women Empowerment
In many countries, women are the marginalised section of society and these activities are geared towards more opportunities and better quality of life for them. This leads to not just the women being helped with living a better life but also building better future generations.
Women empower projects are engaged in a variety on-going and short term activities that help in building the confidence, self-esteem, and abilities of women to lead a better life. Activities of volunteers may be geared towards teenaged girls or adult women
Equal rights are not given to women due to their dependency on their family for livelihood as they have no earnings. Women have less access to various essential resources and employment opportunity due to which, women are victim of domestic violence. Empowered women are the framework, which provide desired framework to society and help in sustainable development. It is essential that the leadership should be implemented such that women can be empowered.
