Location: NOSKK Training Center Bauria,
From the 23rd of February NOSKK is implementing “Nai Roshni – The Scheme for Leadership Development of Minority Women”, supported by the Ministry of Minority Affairs in India.
In India the status of women is still not enough established. Women and Children are still suffering the most in the society, especially those from disadvantaged society groups. The situation between women and men is still not equal and women are a not a minority but a marginalized majority in the country.
The empowerment of women is not only essential for equity, but also constitutes a critical element in our fight for poverty reduction, economic growth and strengthening of civil society.
The objective of the programme is to empower, to strengthen and to instill confidence among Indian women by gaining knowledge, tools and techniques for interacting with the Government System, Bank System and other institutions and social topics like Health, Education and Rights. So those trained women can become leadership roles and assert and protect their women rights collectively or individual in their surrounded communities.
Though the programme, they can become independent and confident members of the community and spread their knowledge and skills as a leader and role-model for other women.
The Target Group
The Target Group includes women belonging to all minorities including Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Buddhist, Zoroastrian and Jain. To create a group of plurality and diversity and increase solidarity and unity, 25% of non-minority groups are also permitted and welcomed.
