Our Voices – the Women of Naglachandi
November 26, 2018 – Naglachandi, Uttar Pradesh, India
The women of Naglachandi in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh have much to tell about the challenges they face in their lives. All they need is ears ready to listen…. And what those ears will witness is an innate strength.
Projects in this village and many others across India have begun a movement of independence for these communities. Amrita SeRVe is working to bring self-reliance to 101 villages.
AMMACHI Labs is in coordination with the United Nations to establish women's empowerment as well as toilets and sanitation. AmritaCREATE is teaching literacy to both children and adults, running tutoring centers for school students, and building awareness about health and social issues.
Amrita Center for International Programs is building water filtration systems so that 10 million villagers have access to safe drinking water. They are also working to electrify remote areas with no access to power.
This list will continue to grow. But even more importantly, the people living in these adverse conditions will reach better lives.
