Hello my dear friends,

The above named is an organization which am trying to establish in my country and beyond. It a non-profit organization with the desire to protect the common good of women and children who constitute the most marginalized in the society.

It clear that women are more likely to work in the informal sector and are disproportionately employed in low-quality jobs which their rights are not adequately respected. Majority of community problems results from low incomes, food insufficiency, insufficient skills, insecure health, unequal access to production inputs, unemployment and incomplete education and women are being marginalized in the process of decision-making.

Our main goal is to create a society where equal opportunities will be offered to both sexes and enable women to participate fully in creating s modern society with the relevant skills for the present and future generation. And failure to provide women with equal opportunities is a violation of their human rights.The organization is seeking lasting solutions to the unequal preferences giving to women and children by their parent's, family members and other members of the societies.

Therefore embarks on the socio-economic empowerment of women and the education of children which are vital not only to their families but an entire country and the world at large.

My dear women are not meant to be a slave they too have right to freedom and stop been marginalized by the society. It so disrespectful for some men asking a woman to sleep with him before giving her a Job can you imaging that?

Anyway thank you so much for that your wonderful comment.

Hi, 

You are most welcome!

Yes, this is prevalent in India as well but physical relationship with co workers is a taboo in here, like, people are not talking openly about it. Every day there are five to ten rape stories on TV news and so many on newspaper. It seems to be a difficult task to change the condition of woman asap. But so many are trying, why can't we?

With loadsa wishes,
