Yuvashakti Mahila Aghadi - Activities...

The Dhananjay Mahadik Yuvashakti Mahil Aaghadi (ladies wing) works towards Women Empowerment. Today women of the house need to be self sufficient & self reliant. This would not only benefit them individually but will bring happiness and prosperity to the entire family as well. Through Self help groups of Yuvashakti, we have been able to empower over 48,000 women, with self sufficiency & self reliability by providing them with education, technical knowledge & knowh ow to run their own enterprises & home based business.

Dhanajay Mahadik Yuvashakti Mahil Aaghadi carries out various Activities round the year which help and assist women all over the district :

Kalee Umaltana - Blooming Buds !
Yuvashakti Mahila Aaghadi has undertaken an unique & special program named KALEE UMALTANA i.e. Blooming Buds for the girls ranging from 13-16 years age group. For this age group a special single day workshop is being conducted in various schools, throughout the district covering rural areas also.

In June 2009 the first workshop was organised & since then it is gaining tremdous response from schools as well as from teachers & parents personally. Till date more than 1500 girls from various schools have benefited from this program. Adolescence comes as a challenge for everyone, specially for girls in our society. At this stage they go through major Physical & Mental changes, and many times they easily get attracted towards things which may prove as a cruical 'block' in their lives ; so at this phase they need proper guidance and counselleing for mental, educational & overall development, as well as for building their confidance.

To transform these blooming buds into empowered able women, Mahila Aaghadi is conducting such workshops with the help of experts & distinguished doctors, where girls can get this basic scientific knowledge as well as they can discuss freely on this open forum.
