Aim/Objective/Mission: In India early last century the position of women was low both in social and economic life. They had neither education nor economic ability, having no share in their husband and father’s property. Their life was a long history of ignominy and suffering depending on charity. The basic idea of pioneering organisation was to give dignity to women and to empower them with education and economic freedom through Training of Crafts and vocational education. Our mission is to reach that goal and give a place of honour to women which they will gain on their own right and be considered by her family and society as a person of worth recognition and respect. We have to move with the time, in the present day information Technology has got priority in many aspects and we have added in our project Planning Computer Training for girls.
