Women Empowerment

“There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.”

– Swami Vivekananda


Domestic help/ Maid/ Kaamwali Bai, few of the many names by which we know them. But at Yash Sewa Samiti we call them “Sahyogi” as people cannot imagine their lives without them, yet their earnings are hand to mouth. 

Self help Groups (SHGs) are made for their empowerment and upliftment. With the help of support group  they can overcome the difficulties by providing mutual support to each other. Each of the participants contributes a fixed minimal amount and can also opt for micro funding. This not only teaches them financial literacy but also helps them take control of their lives and helps achieve their dreams.

2.Sabla (Training Programmes)

We have different training programmes to enhance the knowledge and skills of women and children. We help them to become self-reliant and to improve their quality of life.

4.Sakhi Baithaks (Menstruation Hygeine)

Menstruation has always been surrounded by taboos and stigmas which impact on girl’s and women’s emotional state, mentality, lifestyle and most importantly, health.

Women and girls’ capacity to manage their periods is affected by a number of other factors, including limited access to affordable and hygienic sanitary materials and disposal options leaving many to manage their periods in ineffective, uncomfortable and unhygienic ways. Inadequate menstrual protection makes adolescent girls to miss school.

We surveyed the slum localities and tried to find the reason for not using the “Sanitary Napkins”. 
Affordability was one reason. Hesitation to purchase from a male shopkeeper was another reason.

So to make them aware about mensuration, YSS regularly arrange sessions like ‘Sakhi Baithaks’ under  programmes like “Man ki Shuddhi, Tan ki Shuddhi”, Swachhata ki Pathshala” provide them free sanitary napkins.

5. Legal Sessions

We organize free legal advice sessions for females to make them aware about their rights and duties regularly.
