Help Empower Women Within Indian Communities

 
Need Help?

Become one of the many people, who are looking to make a real difference to communities across the world by joining a project that focuses solely on empowering women across India. Work alongside some of the most influential women in India's modern culture and have a real impact on the high number of women in India, living in violent homes.

 The Facts

  •  44.5% of girls are married before 18, with around 100 million women and girls estimated to be victim of human trafficking
  • 48% of the population in India are women, of which over 70% of them are victims of domestic violence
  • Gender inequality is sadly a part of society, especially among the marginally poor. India is ranked at 101 among 136 countries that were assessed for women empowerment on social, economic and political parameters.
  • A crime against a women is committed every three minutes and tragically even more common is rape agasint women, with rape occurring  every 29 minutes

With so much for one gender to compete against, projects like the women's empowerment are vital for the survival of these women, living and suffering in silence. B y allowing these women access to healthcare, education and income generating skills, to enable them to support themselves and their children, should they need to, you are not only saving a life but changing the way a whole generation of women will live.

 If you feel you've got what it takes, to change someone's life for the better and make a real difference to a community, in India, contact us todayfor information about booking your volunteer trip to the women's empowerment projects. The women empowerment program will place you in local girls schools, community centres or local charities, to assist with English language classes, life coaching as well as conducting health workshops and soft skill development, such as computer training.

 Most volunteers will be taking group sessions, or one to one sessions, working independently, or in groups. Project staff will be present at all times and will supply resources and guidelines on what to do. 

 ACCOMMODATION IN INDIA

 The accommodation on this project will be, a local home, or guardian involved in the project, and you will be placed centrally to town. This allows you to take full advantage of the local amenities such as cafe's, the local market and supermarkets. Most accommodation will have wi-fi and if you're sharing a family home, you will have shared access to their kitchen and living space.  Basic resources such as paper, colours or pens will be available for volunteers to buy locally. Feel free to bring any additional resources relevant to this project.
