From The Founder's Desk

Dear Puthri Enabler,

India is a country of over 1.37 billion people with women’s representation of close to 48%. This population of women is yet to be equally benefitted from the country’s rapid economic growth. The reason is straight forward. It is simply due to under-representation of women in the workplaces. However, there is some good news in the form of data.

Happy Volunteering!!

Warm Regards,

As we (another mentor joined me) began planning for our topics we shared our views constantly and found that increasing the attendance at Puthri classes was a major challenge. The school spokesperson, who understood our sincere efforts, came to our rescue in regularizing the attendance. The two of us (mentors) begin to see subtle in attitudinal changes in Puthri scholars.
