Empowerment and Livelihood

Indigenous women are playing powerful leading roles in their families and communities despite being unfortified and marginalized which becomes even more difficult with a disability. Often, indigenous women are unaware of their rights and are deprived of control over their resources. They are left out of decision making spheres and their opinion is not taken into consideration.
NIDWAN works on creating enabling environments for young indigenous women and women with disabilities. NIDWAN provides peer counselling, self-help support and training engaging marginalized women in the society and institutions to represent their voice, and supporting them in their professional development.
NIDWAN believes that Empowerment is one of the keys to achieving sustainability and can make important changes in women’s lives.
