“People living in poverty are not seen as mouths to be fed but as humans whose potential must be unleashed for the end of hunger and poverty.” Thank you to everyone who came out to our gala last night to celebrate#selfreliance and putting people in charge of their own development. We had a blast and it was such a fun, inspirational evening!#THPgala #success #endhunger#accomplishment. See it on Instagram.
We were never consulted in important matters of the Panchayat (local government). Panchayat meetings were not even taking place. Now, when all four of us get together in our capacity as Elected Women Representatives and go to the Panchayat, demanding for meetings to be held, the male Sarpanch and Gram Sevak are left with no option but to conduct such meetings. This also demonstrates the need for women leaders to unite, cooperate and support each other in a patriarchal society like ours.” – Rekha, Ward Panch in Rajasthan#India in #empower.
