Why Women and Children?

In Chhattisgarh, we focus on the empowerment of women and girls because they are disproportionately affected by poverty and discriminations; and suffer abuse and violations in the realization of their rights, entitlements and access and control over resources. Also, experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome poverty, marginalisation and social injustice.

 Pragya Women’s Welfare Society was set up in the year 2015 to work among rioting communities in the City Raipur. The primary focus of the work was on ground interventions for the women and girls of the isolated communities ofvDalits and Other Backward Castes (OBC). We enable women to gain control over their resources, livelihoods, and community-level decision-making processes. The processes include:Elimination of domestic and social violence

. Enable women to pursue education and control financial futures
. Create more comprehensive health care and address HIV & AIDS
. Work against Trafficking more systematically
. Allow women to express themselves creatively
. Ensure the knowledge of rights as a democratic citizen and the right to exercise
   them

Activities

Some of the Highlight Activities are:

- Providing Functional Literacy Classes for women where they would learn things pertinent to their practical life like keeping an account of their grains, learning to count profit from vegetable sales, knowing the basics of health -care like reading a thermometer, knowing the nutrition needs of their family etc. Besides these, providing basic literacy know-how of simple reading and writing, knowing-how to sign their names.

- Providing small-scale income generation schemes for women so that they may have alternative sources of income during the period when they do not have agriculture. This would also help the women to be self-dependant, giving them power to stand-up on their own during adverse circumstances.

- Providing supportive health care for women through health awareness camps, promoting healthy living & nutrition through nutrition demonstration camps and providing awareness on cheap, indigenous nutrition alternatives.

-Providing Skill-trainings through Capacity Building processes. This would give a scope for the women to have a better life and a better tomorrow. Also these trainings would have a social impact. Trainings on local, emergency health care for young women, making environment-friendly products, developing food pro-ducts using locally available re-sources would be some of the trainings imparted under this scheme.
