Where we work
Our Impact Spans Across 6 Indian States
We currently engage with gram panchayats in the 6 states of Bihar, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan, and Uttarakhand.
These are some of the most difficult states when it comes to the issue of women’s empowerment and visibility in the decision-making spaces. Many harmful practices like child marriage, dowry, unfavourable sex ratio, and patriarchal attitudes continue to dictate women and girls’ choices and mobility. Once in office, elected women representatives face numerous challenges in the form of threats, harassment, false charges, and hostility, finding themselves under constant scrutiny. All these pose barriers to the everyday functioning of their duties.
