Our commitment is to empower individuals and communities by providing them with small-scale skills training and interest-free business loans, which offer sustainable and dignified ways to earn a living.
Empowering women is essential to overcome critical social issues such as poverty and unemployment. By empowering women, we empower the nation. In India, women face severe social inequalities. According to a 2020 report by the Right to Education Forum and the Centre for Budget Policy Studies, with the support of the World Bank and UNICEF, nearly 40% of adolescent girls aged 15-18 are not attending school, and 30% of girls from the poorest families have never set foot in a classroom.
Empowering poor and marginalized women has been one of the key goals of the Human Welfare Foundation since its inception. Through our projects, we aim to assist women in the community through various educational, healthcare, and income-generating initiatives. Almost 50% of the beneficiaries of HWF activities are women, and around half of our scholarship funds go to female students.
