Global East Region
affecting change, making decisions
one community at a time

 WOCPSCN's BOT | Global East Regional Director Surekha Shinde meeting with the executive committee of Amravati district Maharashtra NGO...Great job. April 2024

"On Monday, April 22nd, I had the opportunity to visit Vadnera Village in the Amravati district. During my visit, I connected with ASHRU NGO, which is actively involved in addressing the challenges faced by the community. I've attached a few photos from my visit for your reference. Vadnera Village is characterized by low-income households, where domestic violence is unfortunately prevalent. Women in this community primarily work as farm laborers while also caring for their children. However, the situation is compounded by the presence of alcoholic family members, often leading to further distress and hardship for the women. It's evident that this community is deeply entrenched in gender inequality, with women bearing the brunt of domestic challenges. Addressing these issues requires concerted efforts to promote gender equality and provide support systems for those in need. I'll keep you updated on further developments and initiatives."
