Challenge

Women living in urban slums face severe risks and vulnerabilities. It increases impact of multiple disadvantages that women face due to poverty, gender discrimination, and lack of access to higher education, early marriage and limited opportunities to earn their livelihood. Additionally Lack of safety and cultural practices restricts them within the boundaries of domestic life and increases vulnerability to violence denying them opportunities to break through the cycle of poverty and oppression.

Solution

The proposed solution focuses of socio- economic empowerment of young women staying in these urban settlements and to provide them with an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and discrimination. This would be done through employability skills training, critical life skills and linking them to jobs and other income generating options like enterprise development leading to financial independence and greater control over their own lives.

Long-Term Impact

The organization believes that the issues related to employability and social issues and crimes against women cannot be seen in Isolation, They are interrelated and over the years it has generated evidences which force the organization to view equality and social change vis-a-vis economic reality.
