Women Empowerment

Vocational Training in Nursing Aid

The economic empowerment of women has become a major development priority. Giving women more opportunities to earn an income has been shown to make a significant contribution to the achievement of development outcomes. Yet amidst the push to get more women into work and stimulate women’s income earning capacities, less attention has been focused on what would make working more empowering for women. The key lies in women empowerment through economic selfsufficiency and higher awareness levels on social, political and legal issues through mobilization.

There is also a need to recognize and emphasize the diverse roles of women such as reproductive, productive and community management. Women should be organized and strengthened at the grass root level to end their subordination.

Sterlite Technologies Limited(Sterlite) is making an attempt in that direction to make women self sufficient through various skill training programmes.
