How can charitable institutions contribute towards women empowerment?

Posted by aanandhi on August 19th, 2016

Women empowerment has remained an unfulfilled social vision. Through centuries, great social thinkers and reformers felt the need,  though remarkable progress have taken place in different parts of the world , India still lags behind compared to other developed countries  of the world. Of late, there are many charitable institutions which work hard towards bringing women to the forefront, highlighting their eminence, power and greatness in various fronts. One such Charitable trusts inBangalore  is SJF   who strives to endorse women empowerment through activities and enterprises that act as the stepping stones in forming a society that stands for equality, power and strength of women.

This charitable trust in India, is working for the empowerment of women through giving scholarships, teaching vocational courses and instituting degree colleges for women. They deem it their responsibility to educate women, particularly of rural region, so as to bring them out of their inhibitions and traditional taboos and empower them with education, knowledge and wisdom to act as part of their family and society. With this mission, the Foundation has established Jindal Pre University College in 2003, offering high quality education to around 400 students every year. It has also housed a Degree College offering Bcom and BCA as academic courses.

As a well recognized NGO for education, Sitaram Jindal Foundation has The Mahila Arts and Crafts Charitable Institute (MACCI) to offer vocational courses like tailoring, typing, embroidery, beautician course, spoken English, tie and die, computer courses, block printing etc to rural women. Courses like typing, tailoring, short hand and computer are taught free of cost to the students who are unable to continue their higher education. Students who enroll themselves with tailoring and embroidery courses are provided with stipends also. Needless to say that Sitaram Jindal Foundation has been reckoned as one of the best charitable trusts in Bangalore.

MACCI has, among others, a scheme of providing sewing machines free of cost to those who are economically constrained, and at 50 % of the cost to others who can relatively bear the cost. Free training of tailoring too is provided so that these ladies can within no time, attain economic self-sufficiency.  No wonder, it is well appreciated as a charitable trust in India that proves its commitment to empower women through enhancing their knowledge and vocational skills.
