Employment Charities for Women Empowerment
Women have always been the empowered ones. That is the reason they are able to give birth. Unfortunately, this fact has never been noticed or highlighted in the past so many years. It has taken modern age related issues, situations and ordeals for women to be recognised as the Superior One. Always referred to only as the ‘fairer sex’ women were always taken for granted and it is only reasons beyond our comprehension that finally women are getting the status they anyway deserved.
Employment Charities for women occupy a prime role in NGO work these days and with more and more people wanting to be part of their contribution to the world socially, the NGO activity has taken a boost and charities and social work seem to go hand in hand these days. India is the fifth largest economy in the world and has a booming international connection. However the sad part is that the country still has around 30% illiteracy. This is what NGOs wish to eliminate and employment charities have slowly become the order of the day. Indian women need support not only from the social point of view but also from the ‘being empowered’ point of view. Though the Indian woman has come a long way in being recognised globally still the work and the contributions made by the NGOs surely help in making them stronger and more determined.
Meanwhile the Indian Government has also brought about legal changes like changes in the marriage laws, changes in the opportunities for women, changes that have defined a woman’s steady growth in society. There are many social institutions which have empowered such disenfranchised women by providing them innovative, creative and developmental platforms.
Teaching them right
Every change makes a difference and teaching them right begins with making the women capable and more efficient as regards their everyday life. By ensuring that they are taught means to earn a living, the NGOs only are making their presence felt in a subtle but meaningful way. There are institutions that teach tailoring to the women thus making them stand on their own without having to depend on traditional literacy. This revolutionary idea has made a difference to many in small villages and the fact that they can earn from their home makes all the difference. Rural areas are famous for their wisdom, knowledge and expertise that they inherit over generations and once this art is put to use there is nothing to stop a woman from gaining independence.
Enabling the Impossible
So for those who thought it was impossible to attain independence, simple ideas have helped. Besides, most of the women are educated in today’s villages. These women could be trained for better purposes like administration, defence, staff training etc. These small time jobs pave the way to give them a reason to aspire for bigger positions. When one is confident, one aspires for the moon and the NGOs thus enable women to think of something beyond their normal by insisting on Employment Charities at these levels.
Tapping their Potential
Women are endowed with natural skills to perform in times of crisis. Simple art knowledge like embroidery and needle work have seen to go miles in career stories. It is unbelievable but true. Walk into a village and one can experience the potential that women have. NGOs have tapped these very potential women and provided them with a reason to apply their knowledge of patchwork, tanka embroidery, applique work etc all of which come under the creative category and are globally much sought after techniques.
Recognising their worth
Women are the backbone of not only a family but also of the society. They are born leaders. However it is the social structure that has pushed them behind their worth. NGOs today are giving back to the women what they have lost. There are NGOs today which are providing the women a platform to use their voice, using various employment charities. These charity based setups teach women their rights, educate them to stand up for themselves and become a part of the system they always were. We see more and more women joining the defence forces these days thus proving that these ‘Joans of Arc’ were always there only they needed a speaker to voice themselves.
The UN and Women Empowerment
The United Nations has given the objective of gender equality and has asked to eliminate inequality in the workplace. Thus activities that focus on such an agenda surely have made things easier for women. This coupled with the recent outcry on colour bias has given all the reasons for women to feel powerful, strong and ready to face the world with its challenges and the charity based NGOs are the reasons why women are stronger, more determined and mentally eased out these days.
With more and more people offering to help towards the working of charitable organisations and with women ready to set to show their mettle in all areas of life, life has come a full circle with women battling all odds and come back to where they belonged - to the society, to the world and to the hearts of all who wish to make the world a better place.Donate
