Women Empowerment

STI’s Women Empowerment Programme (WEP) focuses on improving the conditions of women; especially those in the marginalized communities so that they can access quality life with basic education & Counseling programs.

Our work among women focuses on protection to those affected by:

  • Domestic violence: subjected to—physical, sexual, mental, verbal or emotional violence
  • Human Trafficking: for prevention of trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation
  • Dowry harassment: the giving or taking of dowry
  • Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic: prohibits sex selection before or after conception and prevents the misuse of pre-natal diagnostic techniques for sex determination leading to female feticide

WEP is committed to enabling women, making them aware of their rights and entitlements, and empowering them to set up and maintain safe and secure, inclusive and gender responsive environments.

We believe this will lead to the development of a cadre of empowered women who become agents of change. They carry values of inclusion, mutual respect and equality, and democratize the spaces in which they live, whether it’s their family or community.
