EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM FOR WOMEN + CHILD DEVELOPMENT IN 20 VILLAGES

Dansiri, INDIA

Project Description

This 3 year project will reach marginalized women and children living in 20 villages surrounding Dansiri, India who are living in poverty. As gender inequity is a serious problem in India, females lack education and are often considered “invisible in society.” Because the need for health care is urgent due to inadequate health care facilities and unhygienic living conditions, malnutrition, malaria, tuberculosis, jaundice, and typhoid are some of the common diseases that require treatment. By developing health consciousness in the community by involving these women in health awareness campaigns and committees, the Sisters hope to see long term improvements. Year two of the program will specifically focus on skills development and livelihood sustainability, while year three will be dedicated to consolidating overall project objectives.
