Mukti participated in a 2-day residential capacity building workshop on Casework, hosted by the Shahoshini project at the Indian Institute of Training and Development (IITD) in Kolkata. The workshop gathered 23 Shahoshini members, all driven to enhance their skills. The aim was to define the criteria for an effective community case worker and explore key principles applicable in all situations, especially addressing violence against women.
Facilitated by experts from “Swayam,” the workshop delved into community casework roles and strategies to counter violence. The first day covered case registration procedures and legal processes, empowering participants to advocate for victims. Role-play scenarios vividly demonstrated ideal caseworker conduct.
On the second day, participants shared personal experiences, fostering a deeper grasp of practical challenges. Emphasis was placed on self-reliant support for victims, with interventions reserved for utmost necessity.
Mukti’s active involvement in this workshop showcases a commitment to the self-reliance of communities while being poised to effect change through informed and compassionate interventions.
