The word women empowerment essentially means that the women have the power or capacity to regulate their day- to- day lives in the social, political and economic terms -a power which enables them to move from the periphery to the centre stage. By women empowerment ISARD aims at.

  • Changing societal attitudes and community practices by active participation and involvement of women.
