Women NGOs are a crucial need of current society. Women in society are still fighting for their rights. Our NGO supports such women and helps them their better survival.
Welcome back Readers to Mother Concern’s Blogs page. Here we write what we had done and what we need to do in the upcoming time for society.
Today in this article, we will give you reasons why we need to support women. We will also make you aware of certain government schemes. That is for the betterment and empowerment of women living in our country India.
Society is a place where every person can live, laugh, and spend their life peacefully. But is this happening in real time?? Ask Yourself!!
We do not think so. If this was then we do not think we have to write on these subjects time again to empower women.
Having a house, food, education, and clothes are the fundamental rights of a human. Does not matter whether rich or poor everyone has this right for their survive. Women NGOs are trying to fulfill these needs for the better survival of the poor.
Now we want to ask you our readers a question. Is this a duty of the government or NGOs that we have to help the deprived section of society? Or should be your moral duty too to help them if you are capable of it?
For sure we all have to work together as one if we truly want to see a growing and happy India. A changed and empowered economy will benefit every single citizen without judging.
Without further delay let’s move on to the need to empower women.
Throwing Light on Women’s empowerment in India and its Importance
Women empowerment in India is the most effective tool for development these days. Women across the world are actively working as a leader and surpassing others in all spheres of life. That is why we need to empower women living in any area of India. Women in rural areas and urban slum areas suffer the most from disagreements. Their thought is not even listened to before making decisions.
While our various distributions we have met a lot of women who are facing this problem. Women NGOs help such ladies and girls of society. Let’s have a brief on what we do to help women living in Delhi.
Women Hygiene kits
Mother Concern NGO provides hygiene kits to women living in slums and rural areas. They have very limited access to money and other essential resources. Hence, they need our support for their better survival. The Hygiene kits provided to women contain sanitary pads and vitamin capsules. These kits help them in reducing their problem during difficult times.
With the help of Aahar- Food Distribution Drive of Mother Concern, we feed at least 4,000 people. This food is full of nutrition that helps in their physical and mental growth. Along with this, it helps them beat their hunger as well. We serve in slum areas of Delhi, U.P., and Meerut.
Education is a basic need for every individual. Especially to those who belong to a poor community. Due to a lack of money, poor parents are unable to send their children to school. They either send their children to a government school or they learn little at their home. They mostly engage their children and themselves in working. Though there are many rules for child labor because they are helpless, they do work.
Schemes for Women of India by the Indian Government
There are many schemes for women in India for their support and safety. Here we are going to discuss some of them in brief: –
