Women Empowerment

Sarboday Sangha works in empowerment includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training. Organization strongly believes that women's empowerment is all about equipping and allowing women to make life-determining decisions through the different problems in society. Access to financial services and the subsequent transfer of financial resources to poor women enable them to become economic agents of change. Women become economically self-reliant, contribute directly to the well-being of their families, play a more active role in decision-making, and are able to confront systemic gender inequalities. Sarbadoy Sangha facilitated the concept of SHGs among community women to encourage them to participate in their development and work towards day-to-day problems through small savings. It was a major step to realize economic freedom.
