Women Empowerment is not only an economic development of a woman but it lead to a holistic development of entire family. A woman always thinks about her family betterment compare to a male member of the same family. An empowered woman is able to give better education to her kids and also able to take care of everyone when she has the power of decision making. A successful woman inspire many other women in the community hence eventually overall community will see path of development.
PURE India Trust has set a goal to increase the degree of autonomy and self-determination of women among families and in communities in order to enable women to represent their interests in a responsible and self-determined way, acting on their own authority. We have found many such programs which can be combined to create more effective, responsive, inclusive, and accountable institutions for women empowerment.
We have been working on following programs which are unique in their nature and affect directly not only a woman but to their families and communities as well.

Parinati: Women Change Leader development
In India, women’s position in our society especially in villages is not encouraging even after 70 years of independence. Mostly, Women are dependent on their father, Husband, Brother or uncle for their any financial & non-financial requirements. Women are not exposed to various job opportunities in private or Govt sectors and they cannot even think of participating in academic classes to groom themselves. Hence we strongly believe that we must put in our honest efforts to help in empowering women.
Parinati program is designed with deep understanding of the areas and varying cultures, allowing us to transform the lives of girls through life skills trainings and attitudinal changes. In our quest to create a platform for girls to attain education, life skills both practical and academic, Exposure visits, break cultural notions, norms and explore opportunities; we envision a future marked with community participation and active interventions. We are developing women leaders with skills like self-respect, socio economy, women health, financial literacy, Indian laws and leadership, skill development and scholarships for higher educations.
