A grant from Spanish Manos Unidas has strengthened our massive social interventions for Widow Emancipation and Women Empowerment, especially during these challenging pandemic times.
This partnership is aimed at mobilizing around 25000 people to lobby for the rights of women and improve the lives of poor rural women in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh by upskilling them in advanced livelihoods.
- This grant will help us conduct 10 district-level awareness seminars for 15000 participants on the discrimination faced by widows and prevention of such atrocities
- We will conduct 20 college-level seminars educating 8000 students on the role of youth in social change
- We will also conduct workshops for 200 village sarpanches, 100 student committees, 100 development professionals from nonprofits, and 130 Widows Rights protection committees to train them on lobbying for widows’ and women’s rights
- Creative IEC materials for promoting the cause and documenting the progress of our interventions are also included in the program activities
- This grant will also help us empower 100 rural poor women economically by providing them advanced tailoring upskilling classes, alongside counseling sessions on personality development, stress and change management, and legal awareness.
