Purpose:

 To create awareness of the Women’s Right and to empower Women

Scope:

India is home to around 232 million individuals aged l5-24 years, who account for 19.15% of the country’s population. Engaging with these young students is crucial to help them critically assess notions of masculinity and question prevailing gender inequities. We need to tap into the goodness and sense of justice of these young students, and give them tools for maintaining those gifts as they encounter people and experiences that are different from their own. We need to engage with these boys and girls to challenge and shift gender norms that contribute to girls and women having less worth, opportunities and decision-making ability than boys and men. 

In order to promote gender equality, guaranteed by Article 15 of the Indian Constitution, we need to change the mode of interaction at all levels – home. school, workplace and so on. To increase the outreach for creating an environment that fosters equal treatment, Government of India envisages engagernent of Gender Champions in all schools and colleges across the country. It is a joint initiative of the Ministry of women and Child Development and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

  • To assert the importance of spiritual, economic, social, racial and gender equality
