Social Empowerment

A nation can't progress unless its women are educated & empowered. As it is evident, rural women of Uttarakhand, often known as Paharan are known for their courage, perseverance and hard work.



They are socially and politically active and are striving to improve their lives. But they still face many problems and need more guidance and encouragement from government and non-government agencies to empower themselves.

We at HIMWATS, strongly believe in this and have been consistently working towards achieving it. Women are educated about their rights at home & the society.

Uttarakhand Scenario

The Uttarakhand has almost the same economic and geographical problems as in the Kashmir valley or in the North East Region of India. However, due to inherent backwardness of the people, the things are not evident to outsiders. In any case, the creation of Uttarakhand state, as the 27th state of Indian Union on Nov 9, 2000 was a result of the neglect of the region by the large state of Uttar Pradesh, India, politically. Economically, till today, it has not brought much change in the region. It is expected that Education is the panacea for all the evils in the region.
