Our Initiatives
When a women is empowered the nation is empowered
Knowledge Empowers is an education initiative of Unnayan Foundation Trust with a mission to educate all illiterate girls and women in the near social network initially and in the larger society in the long run. We motivate young girls who have not yet joined schools and also the reluctant drop outs into joining formal education through counselling and support them financially also, if required. In our adult education programme, illiterate women are motivated to learn to read and write so that their exploitation due to ignorance is stopped. The volunteers for the adult education come from these families only. These are the girls who took to formal education and are competing with everyone in every field.
We at Unnayan Foundation Trust feel that if the "Janani" (Creator) of mankind is herself not healthy, how can she produce a healthy generation. In order to build a healthy society we need to take care of the health and nutrition of our women because a strong structure cannot be built over a weak foundation. With this end in mind, Unnayan holds free health camps for women both in rural areas and urban slums and also provides free medical aid to all needy - men, women, the young and the aged.
Unnayan Foundation Trust is partnering with Anuna Education Network Private Limited, Lucknow under NSDC STAR SCHEME launched by Ministry of Finance, Government of India which is a limited time skill development training programme to skill over one million youth providing them with monetary rewards on successful completion of training along with a certificate which enables the youth to seek a job on priority basis in both private and government sector.
