Finding their true potentials!
The COVID Pandemic deepened pre-existing gender inequalities, while disproportionately affected women and girls. Not only did women lose their livelihood, worldwide but they became more prone to domestic violence.
Don Bosco Network strives to empower women, especially the vulnerable so they can fulfill their potential. Our women-centric, participatory programmes aim to reduce inequalities between the genders through economic self-reliance and social justice.
One of such programmes- Sustainable Livelihood for Underprivileged Members (SLUMs) provided training in tailoring, making bags and face masks, along with marketing assistance to 50 underprivileged girls.
Thanks to the support of our partner, Jugend Eine Welt, these marginalized girls could acquire new skills that helped them to earn income and become financially independent.
The Don Bosco Network in India comprises of 11 Planning and Development Organisations (PDOs), each dedicated to the development of the Salesian provinces they serve. The Don Bosco network is spread across 29 states and 354 NGOs, reaching more than 10 lakh people.
