Women are the backbone of our society. Their status has improved through the years, yet complete emancipation is still a far fetch dream due to various social and psychological reasons.
SEED CSR’s endeavour is to make women self-reliant, develop personality skills and discover their own self through projects under our mandate to implement CSR Project.
International Women’s Day is celebrated in the month of March. As our projects focus on women empowerment, highlights of some of the projects specifically aiming towards this area in form of skill development and Women Self Help Groups (WSHGs) are as follows:
