Empowering Women and Girls for Community Leadership

Sanchetana is dedicated to fostering community cohesion and empowering women and adolescent girls through leadership development. Our mission is to enhance collective action within slum communities, enabling residents to unite against exploitation and discrimination, ultimately becoming architects of their own progress. Central to this effort is the formation of “Sangharsh and Ekta Sangathan,” a dynamic organization of women and young female leaders.

This initiative serves as a unifying force, bringing together women and adolescent girls from diverse backgrounds within Ahmedabad’s slums. We’ve established 70 area-level groups, comprising 500 women and 300 adolescent girls. Through regular meetings and specialized programs, we equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to lead their communities effectively. Our ongoing commitment is to help them realize the power of their unity, embracing their identity as Sangathan members.

These women and girls participate in regular group meetings, both individually and collectively, further nurturing their leadership potential. By investing in their capacity development, we empower them to become formidable leaders within their communities, driving positive change from within.
