Women’s Day 2021 – “Choose to challenge”

Women's Day

In the words of our Revered Prabhuji “Woman emancipation is the principal motto of this age. …..bear it in mind again, that an ideal society depends upon the progress of women. Ideal wives could specially present dedicated children to the society. Their idealism and character endowed with purity could carve new path in the society….” To uphold the message of woman emancipation, which is the need of the hour, Shamayita Math focuses on empowerment of rural women- through organizing them into women collectives- self help groups, federations, and emphasizes on their capacity building through training- on group dynamics, SHG book keeping, SHG audit, good agriculture practice, scientific animal rearing and on entrepreneurship development. Objective is to provide their families an incremental income through multiple livelihood interventions. Women’s collectivization and economic empowerment gives them dignity and respect in home, family and society and helps them to walk with confidence and determination through all challenges. Facing a challenge ultimately leads to a revolution- revolution of mind. Inner revolution actually leads to the welfare of mankind, welfare of the society. This is manifested as A CHANGE in the society .
