Hi, I am Pavithra and I have been working in the social sector closely for a decade. I have actively volunteered for over 15 years.
My work involves working closely with women who create handmade products. During a conversation I had with a lady who works at the enterprise, I asked her if she had received her remuneration. She said, 'I have to check with my husband as he manages all our finances'. Her answer made me think about the real meaning of women empowerment? Is it the contribution women make towards economic growth? or is it that women despite any financial earnings are capable of making their own decisions?
Through this event I hope to raise money to empower women with information, skills and tools which will enable them to manage their finances, make their own decisions and feel independent and confident about their choices.
My aim is to raise 1 lakh rupees which will help transform lives of approximately 250 women. Looking forward to your support in helping me achieve my goal!
