(A)181 Mahila Abhayam
Safety and security of girls and empowering them for self defense are the main objectives of Mahila Abhayam programme. In this programme we conduct a demo of 181 Mahila Abhayam programme – A Gujarat Government initiative. In the demo we explained how to do self defense and what are the legal rights available to them by the government. We explain how to take help from police and legal persons in cases of Gender based Violence – (GBV) Also, we arrange workshops with a small group of women on a regular basis.
It is an initiative of the National Commission for Women, Government of India. Women are a powerhouse. To make them realize their strength, we organized a seminar and rally of 850 girls and women. Girls wore fancy dresses to showcase great women of India. Girls got a new hope for their future through this program.
(C) Marvel Women Award
On 8th March, International Women’s Day, we awarded 22 women of different age groups, who have shown unique qualities in their respective fields. Those talented women of Dhanera, inspired school and college girls to be independent and successful in life.
(D) Gender based violence (GBV)
We have organized elocution competitions in schools on Gender based violence topics. Dhanera has a low literacy rate. Women are financially dependent and male dominance cannot be resisted. New generation should be aware of the importance of financial independence, girls’ education, and equal rights for men and women. Consequently, domestic violence can be reduced.
