How to empower women in various aspects and importance of Gender Equality


Evidence of success:

The activities have a positive effect on the students especially girls. Programs on legal awareness, physical training, self-defense, special training on home management, hospitality management and cooking help in developing personal, social and professional skills needed by girls.

Problems Encountered:

In some activities there is a limitation on the intake of student participants which poses as a hindrance owing to the enthusiasm of the students.

Resources required:

1) Sensitization lectures by the heads of the departments and other senior faculty to emphasize on the need of these activities for the development of students.

2) Motivating students to participate in all these activities in huge numbers.
