Besides ridding them of their sick thinking processes, our courses will be designed to give them an identity.
- Swayam Siddha
- Women are discriminated against and exploited in India even today, when the voice of the fairer sex has found a stronger voice in all aspects of life. Even as our social structure is undergoing changes for the better, the chasm between the two sexes is still noticeable. And if it happens to be an orphan girl, chances of her being exploited by society increase manifold. It is imperative that such females are prevented from being dragged into the dark undercurrents of life. They need to be protected in the initial stages and then made independent for their survival.
Swayam Siddha is an effort in the direction of providing necessary education, imparting certain vocational skills and creating employment opportunities for these females. After all, a woman is the creator of life. If anyone deserves a life of dignity and respect, it is her.
