Overview

Millions of lives full of promise: mothers who could provide for their children, daughters who could be the first to graduate from high school, and young women who could start businesses and create jobs. This is the future we can and must achieve together. Yet almost everywhere around the world, women and girls are still denied these opportunities, often simply because of their gender.

Financial Empowerment

Empowering women to participate in economic life is essential to build stronger economies, achieve goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for families and communities. Winning rights for women is about more than giving opportunities to any individual woman or girl; it is also about changing how countries and communities work. Developing half of the society and remaining the other half underdeveloped won’t prosper a nation.

Glimpse of India
India is a country well known for its culture, history, landmarks, traditions, and religion; but it is also famous for male dominant society. Nehru stated that “To awaken the people, it is the women who must be awakened. Once she is on the move, the family moves, the village moves, the nation moves”. Based on the above statement, if women are strengthened, then the development of the country is an inevitable outcome. To achieve this goal we need to destroy the atrocities that demean women such as honor killing, illiteracy, dowry system, rape culture, female infanticide, gender inequality, domestic violence, sexual harassment, women trafficking, and prostitution. Discrimination, mainly on the basis of gender, generates cultural, social, economic and educational differences in the society that pushes back the growth of the nation.
