With two-thirds of the world’s illiterate population female and countless girl's not receiving a basic education, supporting women in developing countries is vital to helping overcome critical social issues such as poverty and unemployment.
By supporting women in society and giving them access to equal opportunities such as an education, jobs and health care, everyone benefits. Infant mortality rates go down, more children stay in school, incomes increase and the cycle of poverty can be broken. By volunteering on this program with GVI, I will join a dedicated team of international volunteers assisting on sustainable and invaluable women’s empowerment initiatives.
In India, women are born into a society that is still having to face social inequalities ranging from gender-specific abortions, mistreatment from their spouses, eve teasing, being married off at an early age and in some cases being denied an education by their families. Through this project,I aim to work to imrpove gender equality through various educational, healthcare and income initiatives and empower local women by educating them on their rights the opportunities available to them.
