Situation of the woman in India

We promote gender equality in all areas in which we work and have created a Women’s Center from which various actions are coordinated for this group.

Women in rural India, especially in areas of extreme poverty, are rejected even before they are born. They face discrimination and violence in their work, personal and social life, despite the fact that the Indian Constitution contemplates the principle of gender equality. Likewise, legislative efforts to prevent problems derived from traditional practices such as dowry, child marriages, sexual violations, etc., are not having the expected effect and these practices continue to exist.

In this program we take care of fighting violence against women and empowering them, through the activities mentioned below.

ABC Project

Designed for girls and young women who have never had the opportunity to go to school because they had to take care of their younger siblings or do the housework.  More than 20 girls come each day and are keen to learn; with the use of an adult learning method, in 6 months they can write, read and solve basic maths problems, all of which is of great use in their everyday life.

Sewing School

Aimed at Amwan adult, young and adolescent women so that they can learn a trade (even have their own workshop in the future) or simply to sew to make their family’s clothes. In addition, the sewing workshop provides a place where women can meet, chat and share their experiences and problems.

Self Help Groups and Microcredit

The creation of Self Help groups encourages women to create bonds of unity among them and help each other in different circumstances.

Until we started with this program the poor women and their families were forced to ask for money from money lenders when they had an emergency, which charged them very high interest, which ends up becoming a relationship of slavery with them.

With the creation of Microcredit groups we create awareness among women of the importance of saving and being united and helping each other. Women deposit an amount of money per month in a group account of their own. For this we teach them how to sign and how to carry out the bank’s management. When they need money they ask the group for the money saved in the account and thus avoid asking the usurers

Women’s Talks

Although there are different Indian laws that recognize equal rights between both sexes, the role of women continues to be devalued. Likewise, legislative efforts to prevent problems derived from traditional practices such as dowry, child marriages, sexual violations, etc., are not having the expected effect and these practices continue to exist in areas where the population lives in extreme conditions. poverty.

From the Women’s Center we organize informative talks so that women know their rights and make use of them.

We pay special attention to widows and women who have been abandoned. A socially marginalized group that suffers poverty and physical, emotional, cultural and religious marginalization.

In addition, we organize workshops on hygiene and preventive health in which we deal with issues such as pregnancy, baby care, alcoholism problem, domestic violence, etc.
