"There's no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish." - Michelle Obama

At IGSS, we stand firm on the belief that you should give a woman the right opportunities, and she will conquer the world. Sadly, the ground reality in many parts of the Lucknow city isn't as appealing as this quote sounds.

Many females in the city, especially the adolescent girls and young women, are denied their basic birth rights of good health, life in a dignified and safe environment, basic education, employment, dignity, and a sense of respect in society. The root causes of this gender inequality are mass illiteracy, generational poverty, and fickle-mindedness of people.

As a Mahila NGO working in Lucknow for the upliftment of women, we have come to a realization, because of the experience of our past years, that there are still thousands of women in the city who are an easy target of their husbands' fury on a daily basis because of their inability to take a stand for themselves. There are many girl children who are forcefully married at a very young age, and thousands of girls are forced into prostitution every day by their own family members. These females have accepted this condition as their life and have given up the courage to fight against all odds, which is a shame for our Indian society.

The role of NGOs in Women Empowerment in the past years has been incredible. Female victims of gender abuse feel more comfortable talking about their condition with strangers, especially other females, and that's exactly what has helped us to release these women from the evil clutches of the patriarchal norms of society and bring about a significant change in their lives. We have made this change a beautiful reality by means of our tailor-made strategies that are executed through the following programs -

  • Providing free education to the girl child living in the underdeveloped and backward regions of the city.
  • Conducting regular awareness programs focused on Women Empowerment, women's safety, and gender equality that are aimed at propagating the idea of opposing the killing of girl children and the denial of basic fundamental rights to girls.
  • Educating the common masses living in the underdeveloped regions of the city regarding the upliftment of the female gender by means of interactive slides, attractive audio-visuals narrated by influential people, and educative movies.
  • Educating the female gender regarding the laws in the Indian constitution regarding women's safety and Women Empowerment so that they evolve into socially aware adults and contribute to social change.
  • Providing education to the adolescent girl child regarding the changes in their bodies and educating them on how to cope with these changes. Providing free medical health care support to all females and educating them on how to maintain good hygiene.
  • Educating the victimized females to raise their voices against household gender-based violence by providing them with safe means of livelihood and also providing them with an atmosphere to learn new hobbies and talents.

Anything that makes a woman feel inferior and robs her of her self-respect is women's abuse, and we stand strongly against that. At IGSS, we work to Empower Women of India by educating them. We aim at providing a safe and secure rehabilitation center for sexually exploited women who land up in such evils against their will.

The IGSS team aims to destroy the age-old mindset of people by regularly engaging in positive conversations with the family members of the victimized and oppressed females and invoking a sense of gender equality among them. According to the recent UNDP Human Development Report, India has a dangerously imbalanced sex ratio, the primary reason being rampant infanticide and sex-selective abortions.
