Be a part of the journey to women empowerment

Our society is very reluctant when it comes to sharing about one’s health and related issues. Hamri Bahini has provided a safe place for the didi bahinis to share such health-related issues and offered guidance towards resolving them. In August 20 2019, Hamri Bahini organized an interacting event at HCI Sustainability Complex where we shared awareness about Cervical cancer, Breast cancer and family planning. Hamri Bahini also provided guidance to the didi Bahini on their own health related issues in a one-to-one conversation session.

 

Empowering a woman also means empowering their family. In an event held by Hamri Bahini in collaboration with Sadbhaw schorlarship program (incubated by Himalayan Climate Initiative) on May 18 2019, reward didi bahinis upon the professionalism shown in their field of work. Hamri Bahini constantly reviews the works of the didi bahinis and on the basis of the feedback of the employer regarding the didi bahini’s punctuality, timely notice of leaves, follow of all rules and regulations and their overall working behavior, Hamri Bahini select 35 didi bahinis and decided to provide scholarships to their children. Sadbhaw scholarship includes a package of school uniform set, a pair of shoes and socks, copies and stationery materials such as a packet of pencil, geometric/pencil box, calculator, pen and school bag.

Teej is one the most awaited festival celebrated by women.  In light of the fact that due to the busy schedule and hectic lifestyle of the didi bahinis, many of them are not being able to celebrate Teej. Hamri Bahini has established itself as a home for the didi bahinis where they can celebrate and share their problems. Hamri Bahini organized an event on August 24 2019 at the HCI sustainability complex to celebrate the occasion of Teej. In this event, didi bahinis associated with Hamri Bahini and also didi bahinis eager to work joined the celebration. They indulged in sharing gifts, dancing, sharing problem and counseling with each other.
