Shine project- “Women Empowerment”
We planned to choose the vocations with a clear focus on women empowerment. Of the 1.3 billion people who live in absolute poverty around the globe, 70 percent are women. For these women, poverty doesn’t just mean scarcity and want. It means rights denied, opportunities curtailed and voices silenced.
Empowerment is the one of the key factors in determining the success of development in the status and position of women in the society. We put a special focus on empowering women and girls, because we believe they hold the key to long-lasting social change in communities. It is our moral, social and constitutional responsibility to ensure their progress by providing them with equal rights and opportunities.
