We invites all Interested volunteers to be a part of our Women Empowerment Program. Your small effort can make a big difference to life of women. We do however request our volunteers to be flexible! It takes time for you to learn about the local women before you start your actual work and you need patience for that. Working in the community is not like a computer program, which is preset; you click and it works. You will be working with women of a totally different culture and lifestyle. Your steps will work slowly but SURELY!
There are three ways to volunteer in our women empowerment program. one is to open women empowrment center in your village/city/town/locality, the serdond is to sale
the products, made by women and the third is to donate for our program.
