Director’s Pen

In our relentless journey towards ensuring holistic development of women & children, during 2016 Shaktivardini focused its interventions on one hand around maternal, infant and adolescents health through health camps and linking the target group to the public health facilities and institutional care to children in need of care of protection through Children’s Home run by Shaktivardhini in partnership with SCPS, Bihar on the other. The methodology encompassed around generating awareness, sensitization and education on rights & entitlements of women and children, fostering public support and community engagement in prevention of female feticide and infanticide, child marriage and human trafficking and providing vocational trainings to women from marginalized sections aiming towards empowerment through self-reliance. Shaktivardini owes its achievements to local government bodies, community based organizations, frontline workers and community leaders and community for their proactive participation and everlasting and continuous support. I express my deepest thanks to the donor agencies for their financial support and all the team members of Shaktivardini for their quality contributions towards creating a just and equitable society. We strive to attain our objective and pledge to continue our journey soliciting coalition and convergence.
