We’re connected, as women. It’s like a spider web. If one part of that web vibrates, if there’s trouble, we all know it but most of the time we’re just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don’t help each other, who will?
India is such a big country with diverse traditions and numerous communities and casts. Every cast has its own ritual and with the name of family tradition and ritual every day at least one women is suffering from some of the other family assault let it be bad husband and bad in-laws or divorce or widow or any other reason for her suffering where she is treated like trash and thrown out of the family and no care is provided not even value as human. A well known saying is always used “you educate a man and only a man is educated but if u educate a women whole generation is educated” this is the power of a women she will share all her education and intelligence among the family members for the upliftment of the family but in countries like India even the educated women face all the torture and assault from the family as is kept as out of place creature. We Sneh team have forward thought and extensive problem handling team who are in support of the women in need. This need can be from trying to make understand the importance of women in the community to helping her with her own stand in the cruel society. We team Sneh support the women by activities like conducting the Rural educational camps where we educate the village people to make them read and write and in the meanwhile also include the women important in the discussion session and sometimes these activities are also conducted by only women from the team so that is an example for the rural women who thinking they cannot come out into the society to prove their stand.
For the women who have value with the family but need some financial support to help their family to come up, in that case, we include them in arranging a small scale industry with a team of like minded women and also provide options like anganwadi (rural educational camps for women and girls Child), dokra i.e. a government policy which provides loans for a group of women to start their own small scale business like making mats, pottery, pickle business, clots weaving, artifacts, and many such which are skills of Indian women. Sneh foundation joins this government policy and provides some support is selling the commodities to the market and brings some selling tenders to such group of women. Our supports are happy from bottom of their heart for their contribution because the government supports in starting the work for the needy women and we support them for earning from those products that they make from their own hands. This support of Sneh not only supports the women from the dokra group but also is a channel of income for the groups to hire employments that cannot join the dokra group but need earning to support their family.
There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.
