Empowerment of Women:
Beauty Parlour Crash Course:
Activity of providing crash course on running beauty Parlour comprising makeup, hair styling, facial etc. are in the domain of empowerment of women. Since women empowerment is the process in which elaborate and recreate what it is that they can be, what they can do and what they can accomplish in a circumstance that they were previously denied. Empowerment can be defined in many ways—accepting and allowing women who are on the outside of the decision making process into it which puts a strong emphasis on participation in formal decision making and in the economic sphere on the ability to obtain an income that enables participation in economic decision making. The economic empowerment creates power in individuals over their own lives, society and in their communities. Women are empowered when they are able to access the opportunities available to them without limitations and restrictions. Feeling entitled to make decisions creates a sense of empowerment. It includes the action of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training. In short women empowerment is all about equipping and allowing women to make life-determining decisions through the different problems in society. Alternatively, it is also the process for women to redefine the gender roles that allow for them to acquire the ability to choose between known alternatives which have otherwise will restricted from such an ability. Since women empowerment has become a significant topic of discussion in development and economics our NGO has thoughtfully selected this activity of guiding the girls for setting up beauty Parlours whereby they would be economically independent.
The workshop conducted in this direction facilitated adequate training and knowledge on topics central to the beauty Parlours such as makeup, hair styling, facials etc. in the workshop about 40 girls availed of the benefits of the program which was meant exclusively for unemployed girls.
