Women empowerment is the process of treating women with the same status as that of men in all the fields of the society. Women Empowerment has become a movement now but in our country, it only seems a distant dream. We have restricted our perceptions to only upliftment of women- from the value of an object to the value of a living being. But what is required in the present period is something beyond it. We make a great show off whenever a woman makes high achievements but instead of showing off why not accept it to be natural and normal like we do with men doing the same.
Women want to be treated as equals so much so that if a woman rises to the top of her field it should be a commonplace occurrence that draws nothing more than a raised eyebrow at the gender. This can only happen if there is a channelized route for the empowerment of women.
We at UPAY took a small step to empower women in some areas of the cities like in the electronic city of Bangalore by setting up a skill development center. Here we have a teacher who teaches sewing machine, embroidery classes to the women of that area. We are trying to create a platform to sell the authentic handmade products by our own artisans by which they can earn money and be independent.
We are raising the funds to empower women in less developed areas by making them self sustainable. When women empower, everyone benefits family, community, state & nation at large.
