Chetna-Empowering Women

Women consist of a major and a very important part of the world population and their participation in the development of mankind is very essential at all levels but extremely critical at the grass root level.   Most of the women at the grass root level are not imparted with good education and other rights as they are dominated by male society and suffer from gender inequality.

Women have played a vital role in development of society since ancient times. Their contribution has been exceptional at all times but the irony is that they have never been appreciated in male-dominated society because of their gender. Gender inequality has been the major cause of women community being left underdeveloped in most parts of the world. Because of these inequalities women are far away from enjoying their human rights like education, right to live, speech and various other basic rights.

We here at A Giggles Welfare Organisation  support the first and second generation’s rights of women which includes the further written rights :

  • Life : Being able to live to the end of human life of normal length: not dying prematurely, or before one’s life is so reduced as to be not worth living.

It has been emphasized that women all over the world have been short shifted and have not found support for their central human functions. Women are capable of these functions given sufficient, nutrition, education and other support. Women are most often not treated as subjects. Women are as capable as men of exercising will, controlling desires and taking decisions but males enjoy support of social institutions and women are excluded as the ‘other’. Women are often not treated as “ends in themselves” persons with dignity who deserve respect from laws and institutions instead they are treated instrumentally as reproducers, caregivers, sexual receivers, agents of family’s general prosperity.

Come forward with us and support the women for their fundamental rights.
