WOMEN EXCELLENCE

Developing Women Entrepreneurship and Self Help Groups (DWE)
Delivering multiple roles effortlessly every single day, women are undoubtedly the backbone of any society. Doting daughters, caring mothers, competent colleagues and a wide range of many other roles are played by women around us flawlessly and with grace. However, they’ve also been an ignored fraction of the society in many parts of the world. This, in turn, has caused women at large to bear the brunt of inequality, oppression, financial dependability and other social evils. For centuries now, women have been living under bondage that restricts them from achieving professional as well as personal heights

Our goals:

  • Help rural women learn, live and lead
  • Facilitate employment to pursue sustainable livelihoods
  • Empower them to be self-reliant and achieve financial security
  • Inspire and support women entrepreneurs
  • Giving them a voice | Address gender disparity

Objective

Women are considered an important human resource of the nation and every state should try to utilize them as mediators of economic growth and development. Encouragement for women entrepreneurship is one of the ways for that. But unfortunately the traditional mind set of the society and negligence of the state and respective authorities is an important obstacle for the women entrepreneurship development in India. In spite of that women of today break all those obstacles and involve themselves in various sectors and proving their excellence. Major part of national economic development is contributed by rural economy. Rural women have to be initiated to step out of home and take responsibilities in the society. Entrepreneurship is considered to be a key for women empowerment especially in rural areas and hence promotion of women entrepreneurs is focused highly by MCRF. There is a need of continuous attempt to inspire, encourage, motivate and co-operate women entrepreneurs, awareness programs should be conducted on a mass scale with the intention of creating awareness among women about the various areas to conduct business.

Empowering women particularly rural women is a challenge and MCRF is trying to make a mark by taking up this challenge. We believe that Micro enterprises in rural area can help to meet these challenges. Micro – enterprises not only enhance national productivity, generate employment but also help to develop economic independence, personal and social capabilities among rural women.
