  5. 5. Our solution for Ensuring Safety and Empowerment of Women is JUSTICE AND EMPATHY FOR THE VERY “AAM NAARI” The problems faced by women are innumerable and the whole women empowerment issue requires tackling on many fronts. So the idea of JEEVAN Basic projects which will be taken up by JEEVAN would include: 1. Introduction of Gender related courses in middle department of all schools to sensitize children about women. 2. Self training and workshops for all working and non-working women. Campaigns which would spread awareness among women of different classes. 3. Lady drivers for women cabs which would run in all days and especially nights. This would increase the employment among women and make them self-dependent. 4. Celebrities to promote the need of women to raise their voices and speak for themselves. 5. Giving justice to the women who have undergone tough situations.
  6. 6. S O L U T I O N s Educating those who are involved in crimes against women Rehabilitation centers to be started by govt. for those involved in crimes. Recruitment of more female teachers especially in rural areas. Training for SELF-DEFENCE to be given to girls at the grass-root level. A separate evaluative subject on women empowerment to be introduced in primary classes. Information and training sessions for women who are victims of domestic violence. - Individual and group support on self-help and integration of new life skills, i.e.: job readiness, preparation of a curriculum vitae, safe housing, and preventive measures upon returning home. - Semi public and public forums, group training, information, counselling and referral services - Access to legal information and psychosocial counselling - A court accompaniment service - Toll free support line - Self-help and support groups for survivors and victims of violence - Emergency food and clothing assistance - Gazette fund assistance JUSTICE AND EMPATHY FOR THE VERY “AAM NAARI”
  7. 7. Introduction to Gender related courses in Schools There is a need to sensitize people about the problems which women face in their daily lives. This can begin only at school level. This is the time period of ones life when one is learning and can easily grab things and new changes. Attendance in such courses should be compulsory and teachers should conduct workshops. Beside these courses, Quality education is the must. Girls should get educated and learn to raise their voice. Reason for low attendance and high drop-out rates of adolescent girls -Schools in remote areas are far away and not easily accessible. -Poor sanitation facilities. -Schools are staffed exclusively by male teachers. -Parental pressures to get married at early ages. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” These problems if cured properly can help to increase women literacy rates and make women independent to fight for their rights.
