Women Empowerment

Women across the world have fewer opportunities and suffer from exponentially more rights violations simply because they are female. In some countries, women are the legal property of their husbands, are unable to receive inheritance, cannot borrow money, and do not have rights. It is common for women to not receive an education, be allowed to make decisions on how to care for their children, or decide when and how to be touched.

Conditions for Indian women are no better. Women have always been marginalized and delegated to the status of subjugated class in the Indian society. Due to lack of specific implementation of plans, local communities especially women have remained outside the scope and benefits of government schemes and programmes. With these restrictions, women must depend entirely on their husbands for survival. Without a husband, women have little to support them. The resulting statistics of this highly abusive cycle are staggering. Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours and produce half of the world's food, yet earn only 10 percent of the world's income and own less than one percent of the world's property.

Abhinav believes that women have not actively participated in their emancipation due to their lack of economic independence and illiteracy. Hence, there is a need to address the issue by raising the status of women. The key lies in women empowerment is through economic self-sufficiency and higher awareness levels on social, political and legal issues through vocational training. Since, women have diverse roles such as reproductive, productive and community management. Hence, they have to be organized and strengthened at the grass root level to end their subordination.

Abhinav has made an attempt to make rural women self sufficient through various skill training programmes. Fighting gender discrimination is extremely challenging due to embedded cultural traditions that benefit patriarchal systems. These include: vocational skills and microenterprise basics orientation; microfinance opportunities;  community workshops on rights, reproductive health, gender sensitivity, leadership development among the women, life skills, functional literacy, empowerment through  legal and psychological counseling and much more.
Abhinav has the background of organizing programs which brought confidence level in the women’s and drawing them to take on leadership roles in their communities. Women are the foundation of any community and if she is empowered, a family, and eventually an entire community are also empowered.
