2013 and yet , in many parts of the country a woman is regarded as “the unsung heroine who works from dawn to dusk”. This is particularly so in the rural belt of North India. The men folk have been enjoying an undeserving yet unchallenged superiority over women. A woman is dynamic in the many roles she plays. Women face many social challenges today - whether it be moving out of the house to seek education or for an employment what to say of seeking a loan from a Bank/credit institution.
That woman are as and many a times more capable than the men has been proven by the Gender Equity and Women’s Empowerment Program operational at Deepalaya since its inception in 1979. Apart from being POSITIVELY DISCRIMINATED towards girls and young women in its Education and Health Programs, Deepalaya has organized adult women into Self Help Groups and linked them up with various entrepreneurial opportunities through Micro-finance.
