“In our society, the women who break down barriers are those who ignore limits.”- Arnold Schwarzenegger
Empowerment can be defined as a “multi-dimensional social process that helps people gain control over their own lives. Women’s empowerment refers to “women’s ability to make strategic life choices where that ability had been previously denied them”.
Accordingly, empowerment is central to the processes of maintaining the benefits of women at an individual, household, community and broader levels. It involves the action of boosting the status of women through literacy, education, training and raising awareness). Hence, women’s empowerment is all about allowing and equipping women to make life-determining choices across different issues in the country.
We all know the ratio of girls is less as compared to boys in our country, India. And it is due to the orthodox mentality of society who wants to have boys and not girls. In true sense, patriarchy has decided the course of women’s lives throughout ages.
Our Foundation focuses on the women empowerment through MEC(Meaningful Employment Centre) for women and imparting special training such as Montessori teacher training, Bed Side Assistance(BSA) training etc.
Many female students were completed their Degree and not able to go to jobs due to parental restrictions and other family and personal situations.To overcome the mobility issues of the educated women and make them employable at home town, we have started “Meaningful Employment Center” at Tirunelveli under our CSR 2.0.To enable employment opportunities, we have equipped this work place and engage the corporates to deploy our students as their employees in our Meaningful Employment Center.
