WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

 

Introduction

A country like India where the women who are divorcee and single or widow are prone to extremities of life. It is necessary to examine the concerns of our society about the vulnerability of women, the plight of these women and the problems that they undergo. There social position is very weak. They lack in accessing the essential resources like managing their daily household expenses. Many of these women are not only poor but are illiterate too. The conservatism which is inherent in these women doesn’t allow them to become independent or to stand on their own feet.

NCT initiated the Women Empowerment Project by providing financial aid to them in the beginning as a charity approach but later on it was realized that it will not serve the purpose of making them self reliant & self sustainable. Financial aid will only make them more dependent on others. It was observed these women have more or less no support from their families or relatives. They have no source of income and they are totally dependent on Zakat donation to run their household expenses so they are also reluctant to send their children for education. NCT decided to sponsor their children for education through its education Project.

Objectives:

  1. To bring the real empowerment in the life of women who are deprived and disadvantaged & are living in poor, vulnerable condition & support them to stand on their own feet.
  2. To make them self reliant and self sufficient by providing them support for vocational courses and income generation activities.
  3. To bring an attitudinal change in these women to view the life in a positive manner.
