Women Empowerment


At SEESHA, we transform shy, uneducated women into empowered individuals through trainings and development programmes.

For centuries, women have been denied the opportunities and the recognition they deserve. It has taken innumerable efforts by several people, remembered and forgotten, to bring women to where they have reached today. Although much progress has been made, it is undeniable that women in India still have a long way to come in terms of empowerment.

At SEESHA, we have strong faith in the innate power of every woman. We believe that, with the right thrust, this power within her can be unleashed for the betterment of the society. This is what brings us to our work with women in the poorest, most backward communities in India, especially those who have faced economic, social and cultural exploitation.
