Economically, women contribute 66 percent of the world’s human labour force, generate 50 percent of the food produce, but earn 10 percent of the income and own 1 percent of the property. Socially, women are considered to be the center of the family and community life, but are continually being ignored and denied of their rights and has limited access to education, health care, security and overall betterment.

Ø VISUALIZE villages where mothers could nurture their children and ensure their offspring’s well being and where they could run their own small scale business units. Income generating and improvement of financial status could put these deprived women onto the path of success
