Sofia Educational and Welfare Society – women empowerment NGO
Women empowerment is being discussed everywhere. Some people interpret it as giving more power to women while others deduce it as an initiative to educate women about their rights. In India, women empowerment is very crucial for the country’s success and development. Around 50% of the nation’s population is women and if they get a low status in the society, the country can never prosper in the long run.
In India, participation of women in development work is negligible. Except a small proportion of women in metro cities, there’s no significant participation of them in society, economy and politics. Even if they are made the face of a campaign, they are not the decision makers but men backing them. In order to bring women in mainstream and ensure their involvement in decision making, it is crucial that their empowerment is considered seriously.
Women empowerment NGO like Sofia Educational and Welfare Society work tirelessly to ensure participation of women in family decision making all levels of state administration. As per the Indian law, females are given equal rights as of men. However, their condition is still grim. They have to face inequality, discrimination, domestic violence, harassment at workplace, and many such grave crimes. This is a grave reality even in the modern society.

Their initiatives include providing moral, emotional and financial support to women; educating them about their rights; making them aware of legal help; providing rehabilitation to underprivileged women; supporting sexually harassed women; organising self help groups to increase awareness among rural women; providing economically deprived women enough employment opportunities along with necessary training.
