Gender equality is still a burning issue of our times. Still today women are not getting equal individual, social and economic opportunities, though the women are playing a very important role in rural economy. This is severely impacting their capacities and growth opportunities. For a progressive society, the representation by women in social, political and economic processes is very important so that women be empowered for community and social development.
Parmarth has strong women centric approach to reduce gender discrimination and to promote women empowerment. All our interventions are centred around this approach.
