NGO celebrated International Women's Day
India has a complicated track record when it comes to women’s rights and women’s empowerment. But now, many social organizations are tirelessly working to put an end to promoting equality, supporting women, and fairness in wages, behavior, and opportunities have spent years putting women's rights at the forefront of their missions.
This has been progressed over the last decades: More girls are going to school, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, more women can be seen in positions of leadership, and laws are being reformed to advance gender equality.
The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic could reverse the limited progress that has been made on gender equality and women’s rights. The coronavirus outbreak exacerbates existing inequalities for women and girls across every sphere from health and the economy to security and social protection.
ISCI Foundation is working extensively towards reaching out to the poorest communities, building human capabilities, and building women’s self-reliant collectives as change agents.
This year on International Women's Day, we at ISCI Foundation are respecting and remembering the women changemakers of the society at Dholpur, Rajasthan.
The volunteers of ISCI Foundation presented women with sweets, garlands, and Sarees for their contribution as a changemaker for their fellow women in society. It started by honoring 92-year-old Mrs. Durga Devi Ji at Gurdwara Road and ended by honoring Mrs. Uma Devi Ji, the Anganwadi worker at Grandel.
Uma Ji told how she showed many oppressed women the way to becoming self-reliant and encouraged them to move forward in life. The founder of the organization, Smt. Sweta Ji said that her organization would continue to work to make women self-reliant.
