A. Women Empowerment-
“Women are always saying, ‘We can do anything that a man can do’ but men should be saying ‘We can do anything that women can do.’
Women’s empowerment may be described as promoting women’s self-esteem, ability to make their own decisions, and right to influence societal change for themselves and others.
The Seven Women Empowerment Principles are:
Principle 1: Create high-level corporate leadership for gender equality
Principle 2: Treat all people fairly at work, respecting and supporting non-discrimination and human rights
Principle 3: Ensure the health, wellbeing and safety of all workers, whether male or female
Principle 4: Promote education, training and professional development for women
Principle 5: Implement supply chain, marketing practices and enterprise development that empower women
Principle 6: Champion equality through community initiatives and advocacy
Principle 7: Measure and report publicly on progress to create gender equality
We intend to build a society founded on fundamental rights, equality, justice, honesty, social awareness, and a culture of service in which everyone is self-sufficient.
Education is one of the tools through which we may achieve our objectives. Women’s Empowerment is another way of development since women are an essential part of our society and their empowerment may lead to the country’s socioeconomic and political advancement.
We empower women from all socio-economic backgrounds, religions, castes, married, unmarried and even widows. We support them by giving them work to create many hampers which are further sold to corporates. And by this we help them gain status and stability.
B. What does Inclusion mean?
Inclusion is seen as a universal human right. The aim of inclusion is to embrace all people irrespective of race, gender, disability, medical or other need. It is about giving equal access and opportunities and getting rid of discrimination and intolerance (removal of barriers). It affects all aspects of public life.
In education “inclusion” has become the term used to describe the right of parents and children to access mainstream education alongside their peers, where parents want it and children’s needs can be met.
An inclusive setting works towards providing effective planning and different activities (differentiation) in order to meet individual needs.
A number of educational establishments have found that a move towards inclusive education has led to an improvement in general educational standards.
Sensitization literally means making people ‘sensitive’ about an issue. This is the core of awareness raising and is what you ideally want to achieve – that people become aware and react to certain issues.
What are the different strategies to sensitize people around you?
Improving knowledge: This means that you want to inform people about an issue and make sure that they have the correct information to truly understand the issue. You want your target audience to think critically about the issue and actively process information.
Changing attitudes: This means that you want to change people’s behaviour or attitudes towards the issue. You need to explain to them how new behaviours and attitudes will have an impact and maybe even change cultural norms and beliefs.
Focus on skills: Make sure people have the skills to go with their changed behaviour and attitudes.
Building social support: People you are sensitizing should know where they can get support, or give support, to other people facing the same issue.
D. AWARENESS PROGRAM
Community-wide or audience-specific programmes, campaigns, or initiatives that raise audience understanding and share information and resources to prevent violence, promote safety, and minimise perpetration are examples of awareness programmes. The ultimate goal of such efforts is to effect long-term behavioural changes. Individuals and organisations’ knowledge is addressed through awareness raising.
