Summary

SHAPE N.G.O. is implementing its 'Township level Women Welfare Project' in 200 villages. This 15-month project will help 1500 women of Tiruvannamalai, a drought-prone district of India. These preidentified beneficiaries include impoverished, Dalits, disabled, HIV-AIDS victims, widows and downtrodden. They will gain free vocational (sewing/computer) training along with Personal/English Language/Interpersonal Development, Legal/Rights/Health/Environmental education and Psychological Counseling.

Challenge

Tiruvannamalai is an agro-based district where uncertain monsoon, sexism, outdated/denied education, skill gap and lack of awareness plummet the female employment rate, life expectancy & rights awareness. Casteism, dowry issues, HIV stigma, domestic violence, health issues, rape, cultural dogma, and physical/emotional abuse kill women's freedom. SHAPE has been liberating such women out of the clutches by enhancing their economic and psychological status quo. We have helped 5000 women so far.

Solution

Uneducated women will be vocationally trained and Educated women will be prepared for dignified jobs with language and communication/interpersonal skill training thereby gaining economic independence. Formal/Informal legal, health, hygiene, nutrition, and life value counselings will liberate and empower the women. SHAPE will form a self-help network to spread their learnings to the fellow victims. We also want to open an industry to employ these women and sell their products.

Long-Term Impact

Vocational training will gain jobs for 1500 women. Psychological counseling will help to face their daily struggles and barriers. Health, hygiene and nutrition education will increase the life expectancy. The women will be independent of social dogmas, unemployment, and cultural clutches. Educated women will find jobs that suit their qualification. A self-help network & Industrial Unit will be created for employing the women who completed the training.
