Helping women to Helpthemselves

I am Sonia a Counseling psychologist .i am working for the economic empowerment of rural ,tribal women and girls.This helps women to help themselves and their families.And through our empowerment center we can also end DV.Most men in our area are alcohol addicts so they can't feed their children and women are facing domestic violence. through this center we empower women make them learn a skill so that they can earn and have a say in t family.In our center I am also educting girls who are. dropouts from School.And we help them learn about health and hygiene.I also conducted many awareness camps.As a psychologist I do both personal and group counselings.

We trained nearly 100 women and girls in sewing till now.And we nearly 1000 women joined in our group who are in need .I want to expand this work to the remote villages.For this I want some grant to establish another empowerment center.I need financial resources helping hands.

Get Involved

Women who have a heart to help other women in need and who are in very pathetic state.

And any reference s whom I can approach for help.

It also can be of material help...we need 40 sewing machines  and 5 computers and some infrastructure.

Thank you

You are doing a great work Sonia. Economic empowerment of women will liberate this world from clutches of both psychological poverty and real economic poverty. I love your approach. I was in Kerala in 2013, I also trained women from more than ten communities.

I wish you all the best and pray that you have provision needed for your continuous work with women and the families.
