Is there any other important information you want to share about this project?

Please come to India with a flexible and open mind. The Women Empowerment Project in India does not have any fixed work or schedule. This project involves other several programs like education, job training, and health, so you are expected to be very flexible. You may also need to develop a program yourself (like English teaching) to women. If you are flexible, proactive and creative, than this is the best option.

Why volunteer in women empowerment project?

You will help improve the life of unfortunate Indian Women:

Most of the women in India are regarded as second-class citizen and they are not given the same opportunities as their male counterparts. Most of these women are illiterate and lack saleable skills to earn money. When you volunteer in this project, you will educate them about their rights and teach them various skills like sewing, knitting etc. The education you give them helps to make them independent.

You will explore a new country and its culture:

By volunteering abroad is an opportunity to experience new traditions and culture. As a regular tourist, you can just manage to scratch the surface, but as a residential volunteer, you will work with local staff and locals in need. Therefore, you will gain a much deeper knowledge of local language, customs and culture.

You will teach you to be social and kind-hearted people

Helping the Indian women in need helps you leave negative thoughts and become a better person in your upcoming days. By joining one of GCR’s women empowerment volunteer project in India, you get to develop teamwork and interactive skills that help you build a better foundation for your social and professional life.

You will donate your time and skill for a greater cause:

Taking part in this project will allow you to fully dedicate your time and effort into improving the lives of miserable Indian women. You will not only be able to save these children from daily hardships and struggles but also give them a secure space to grow up and develop a good personality.
