Women Development Program:

Emphasis is to enhance role of women in decision making, access to resources, equal participation in all spheres of life, reduce incidents of human rights and violence against women.

Women contributes a lot in diversified livelihoods activities but they are often not allowed or encouraged to participate in decision making processes and to manage financial resources. The relegation of females to only being implementer and restricting their initiative taking abilities, not only limit their productivity in the family but in the community as a whole. Violence against women is observed especially in the rural areas. Unless women are provided equal opportunities in education and other development interventions such as health, livelihoods, water and sanitation it is difficult to fulfill the agenda of sustainable development in this area.Women empowerment Program
