Challenge

In an ever challenging and changing society, empowerment of women has always been a matter of great concern. According to Indian census(2011), Literacy rate among women and girls is only 60%, which is very low compared to others. According to National Crime Records, Bureau(2012), a crime against a women is committed every 3 mins. They face huge gender discrimination in the society and are constantly under threat. Sevikashram will impact the lives of women and children living in this situation.

Solution

To equip women with troubled backgrounds and to meet the challenges of our society, Kasturba Sevikashram was started by Dr. T. S. Soundram as an essential unit of Gandhigram. The "Ashram" has been a home for many troubled women-destitutes, divorcees, young widows and girls from low income households in remote villages. Sevikashram provides a secure environment for them to live with nutritious food and helps them with education, life-skills and gets them ready to have a good life in the world.

Long-Term Impact

Sevikashram's mission is to serve as a safe home for girls with troubled backgrounds and help them get a respectable position in the society. Sevikashram believes that the students getting out, would lead as an example for many outside, and fight all odds of education, poverty and discrimination and empower others in having a respectable life in the society. This has been proven over the years, by the alumni of who have been Teachers, Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers, Etc. and lead their community.
