01. Why the Program is?

● In areas marked by poverty and social injustices, particularly against women and children, understanding rights is crucial. It can lead to an empowered society where everyone can participate in decision-making processes.
● The livelihoods of the inhabitants are increasingly at risk due to climate change. Being aware of their rights and accessing support services can help them build resilience and ensure sustainable development.
● Knowledge of rights is essential to address serious social adversities like human trafficking and forced migration. This awareness can act as a preventive measure and provide recourse for victims.
● Women’s empowerment can be significantly boosted if they are aware of their rights. It allows them to identify and act against instances of gender discrimination and violence.
● Rights of visually impaired individuals are often neglected, resulting in limited educational opportunities. By spreading awareness about their rights, we can ensure inclusive growth and learning opportunities.
● Disaster-prone regions require effective response mechanisms. When communities know their rights, they can demand timely and efficient assistance during calamities, reducing losses and speeding up recovery.

03. What is the Objective?

● To educate individuals, especially women, children, and marginalized groups, about their fundamental rights to ensure social justice and prevent discrimination.
● To create awareness and provide resources to help communities withstand and adapt to climatic changes impacting their livelihoods, ensuring long-term sustainability.
● To provide resources and strategies to combat social issues like human trafficking and forced migration, fostering safer communities.
● To empower women by training them to identify and respond to instances of gender discrimination and violence, promoting gender equality.
