We trained 100 women will become leaders - with them are associated with 500 women.
The leaders are trained on economic leadership, through SFH or through accessing various government schemes. These women then get economic empowerment, so they can sustain themselves. We also work with women farmers who husband have committed suicide to survey them. From this survey we understood their situation, so we recommended the local government to focus on them, so they get the property that is rightfully theirs. Since the paperwork is not in order, widowed women often do not get their husband's property.
The government has surveyed them. We recommended to the government to set up committees at district level, so decisions can be taken timely for more women like these. In light of this the state govt has produced a GR to connect women to different schemes based on the priority. We have also appealed to the government to make sure the GR on connecting women across education, employment, etc, (9) departments gets effectively implemented.
We also worked with females workers in the sugarcane industry. Women who are very young are forced to do hysterectomy. So we mobilized various stakeholders to look into the matter. In light of this, the local government set up a committee to investigate into this matter. Through this, various sugar cane factories are given guidelines to provide a safe working space for women workers.
