"Women are the future of society"


What has been the primary focus/project this term? 


The Women's Project Group is committed to educating and spreading awareness concerning menstruation and menstrual hygiene, with the intent to make discourse surrounding menstruation a much more comfortable topic. Additionally, they focused on reaching out to local doctors that offer a more comfortable and knowledgeable space for the women to ask questions regarding their health. The group is prioritizing providing more sustainable menstrual hygiene products for the women with a partnership with PINKISHE, and ultimately ensuring an establishment of trust with the women in the village.

Additionally the team is also expanding to empower the women of the village in becoming financially independence through various means of financial educational and work opportunities. These efforts are to be expanded by establishing a partnership with the local Self Help Groups in the village to find and distribute resources and opportunities for the women. Collaborating with the Rainwater Harvesting Team to support women in agriculture is also another goal for the team for this year!
