‘Women are the real architects of society ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Dharma Bharathi Mission since inception has always worked towards empowering women. We believe an educated and employed or employable women not only support themselves but are also able to help their families attain economic stability. We have worked with the women belonging from the minority communities and economically less privileged strata of society.
This year on Women’s Day (8th March) we celebrated the Girl power with fun activities and also undertook few charitable projects:
All the women employees of DBM were given handpicked books by authors like Premchand, Amrita Pritam, Saki, etc. to motivate them to cultivate reading as a hobby.
Our Trustee Ms. Farheen Peshimam was invited by Fino Paytech Ltd., a NBFC, to address their employees on Women’s day. She is also on the Board of Sexual Harassment Committee, an issue we have been working together with Fino for many years. This year Fino and DBM did a drive of collecting and donating 102 sarees at the Ghadge Maharaj Dharamshala where the cancer patients are housed.
Another friend and long term associate of DBM collected 100 + dresses single-handedly and with DBM’s support, the dresses were distributed amongst underprivileged women.
SVP Cooperative Bank with the full support of the staff contributed₹ 50,000/- towards the projects of empowerment of women conducted by DBM. We have gratefully accepted and acknowledged this gesture.
The Govandi Vocational Training Centre of DBM conducted sports for women in which around 80 students and even their parents participated. The Chief Guest was Mr. Deepak Pagare, the ASP of Shivaji Nagar Police Station.
