Prayatn has been working towards empowering women through education combined with economic activities and health interventions. The program is based on an empowerment model which encompasses an integrated approach in which skill training program are organized to enhance the capacity of women leading to greater participation, decision making, control and transformative action on one hand and on the other support services of health nutrition and legal literacy are provided to the women.
Violence against women has also been a major area of concern for Prayatn and it made conscious efforts to prevent and reduce violence against women through its Crisis Management Center (CMC) and Mahila Panchayat (MP) effectively working towards resolving family conflicts, reducing and preventing domestic violence under the project ‘Addressing Gender Based Violence in Communities’ with support from Azim Premji Philanthropic Initiative in Ashram, Nizzamuddin and Madanpur Khadar area. The goal of the project is to reduce prevalence of gender based violence (GBV) and provide survivors of GBV with appropriate services.
The difference Prayatn has made and the milestones accomplished have been possible only because of the whole hearted involvement and full support of the community, dedicated & hardworking staff and our partners, to them we shall remain forever indebted. Our donors have been our steadfast supporters ever egging and cheering us to the uncharted. Their financial contribution and confidence to stay invested in us over the years has given us immense courage and strength.
