Some of our Problems
sex selective abortions
Abortions selective against girls because girls have "less worth" in Indian societies.
Lack of health education
Little money and social stigmas cause people not to have proper access to health care, or not have enough knowledge about important problems.
Abuse and crimes against women
Crimes against women occur all across the globe but in India they are more prevalent due to extreme gender inequality between girls and boys.
What We've Done
Since the start of the program to now, we've made large progress. Every single step we take is a step towards larger change.
How We Work
We go into the field to educate the villagers about social issues. We give simple, less radical ideas in new communities and increase them until the ideas are widely accepted. Field visits allow us to touch communities and have an impact on those who do not have time or have not fully accepted the ideas of equality. They provide us a way to communicate with the villagers who are not in the workshops or campaigning at that time.
Training and Workshops
We offer training of women, men and children to teach them about important social matters. These workshops last three days with housing and food. Children and adults from the villages live in Jagori. Our staff give lessons and professionals on the subject normally come in to assist with a deeper, more educated perspective.
We campaign to spread a greater message. Campaigns allow participants and supporters who cannot participate to feel empowered in their issues and their ideas. They show people that have felt ignored and unimportant that they are not alone and garner publicity, allowing our message to spread. Campaigns can vary in the amount of days and consist of protesting and speech giving.
We strive every day to make a difference. Through our programs, we educate woman, men and children. We strive for an equal, safe society for all people in Himachal Pradesh.
