Empowerment with understanding and morals
SMVS, a NGO at Jhagadia works for various departments like Papad,Garment making , Saving and Credit, Adolescent awareness and one of them is Women’s Empowerment Department.
On 12th August, 2012, though being a Sunday, Garment making women were carrying out stitching work to complete the order and earn their living. Suddenly two men reached their and asked to take along a group of women for the voting purpose as elections were held at Divan Dhanji High School and college.
Assuming the women to be ignorant, the man tried to misguide them for their illegal voting interest but to his shock the women were sharp enough and firmly denied them saying in the absence of supervisor they won’t even move a step forward from the premises.
Employment not only helps them to earn their livelihood but confidence to speak and understand the difference between right and wrong.
