Towards leadership for Inclusion

Posted July 10, 2019 from India
I understood No body speak for me , I will speak for myself

Women from "Sonjhari"  community one of the tribe which is still missing from the government list. In spite of 72 years of independence these community is   refrained her from  all government  schemes and just left to live their life at their risk. The Leadership among women has raised hope for this community due to rising leadership among women through training. 

The leadership skills i learned from the CIP leadership training  helped in cultivating the leadership skills among women from this community and raise their voice. Today sonjhari women got organized and started speaking about her problems and demanding her human rights. On the eve of International women's day sonjhari community women collectively participated in the women's convention and shared about their situation and appealed for their constitutional rights. 

Today she understood  that -  No  body will speak for her  And She has to speak for herself. 

Lets know more about this community and support them to get access to their human rights.
