Women Empowerment / Skill Building

Most women have the potential to rise to great heights.  But economic problems, family duties and responsibilities, lack of education, confidence and opportunities force them to confine themselves to the four walls of their home. Though women burn the candle at both ends, most of them do not get the appreciation that they truly deserve. While men being the sole breadwinners get all the praise and importance in the family.

Girls are denied the right to education and those who are lucky enough to complete their education at intermediate level are married off at an early age as part of tradition or to ensure her safety. If women are given opportunities equal to that of men, they can also take care of their family singlehandedly or shoulder the responsibilities along with their family.

At Avid

We at Avid strongly believe in gender equality and we know for sure that the true potential of women is most of the time left from being harnessed. If we keep tradition, insecurities, and gender inequality aside and provide women with opportunities then they can do wonders. All women possess certain skills which lay dormant or hidden due to various reasons. A little nourishing, polishing and sharpening of those skills can help them strive for the best and thereby make better choices in their life. They can lead an independent life and look after their family with dignity. At Avid, we provide training to women so that they could earn a living and thereby contribute to the society.
