The members of the women empowerment cell work with the specific objective of sensitizing the tribal women folk of the issues like girl child infanticide, importance of girl child, girl child education, women’s’ rights, legal literacy, health and hygiene. They visited the lambada tanda at Injapur village and tried to bring awareness among the women on the above issues, and village explained them regarding the various issues such health, hygiene, food and nutrition, maintenance of clean environment, family planning, importance of education, and the number of benefits if the child is admitted into the school, they also urged to prevent drop-outs from the school, to avoid gender discrimination and also explained them regarding the problems with the child marriages, the concentration was also on creating awareness on HIV/AIDS and to precautions to prevent them. Our NSS volunteers have conducted a pre-survey to this programme by visiting over hundred households, to study their problems and to assess their needs for food, clothing, shelter, education, health and hygiene

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CELL REPORT

There is a need to make women conscious of their conditions of subordination and constraints and to create a new sensibility to make her understand her real worth and also to remove the prejudices against women in the mind of society as a whole.Though women in ancient India were treated with high regard and women seers likeSulabha, Gargi, Maitreyi, Aparna and Lopamudra to mention a few have contributedequally for the upliftment of the society. In the present era there is no gender equality. On one side we speak of technological explosion and globalization but on the other side women are still treated as subordinates with regard to their needs and interest. There is a necessity to redistribute the power and resources in order to make men and women realise that they are equal partners of society.

The management of the college has always been extending a strong support to all its women employees and the girl students. We the Pragatians have immense pleasure in starting the ‘Women Empowerment Cell’in 2006. Once in a month and provide free medical check-up and consultation to the needy women staff as well as students.
