What We Do

Women empowerment and child education

Action for Women & Child Development (AWCD) and its collaborative organizations (Action for Green Earth - AGE) is to empower needy children and communities to break the Vicious Cycle of Poverty where poverty spawns problems of malnourishment and mortality while lack of education ensures children follow in their parents’ footsteps scraping a daily existence as manual labor or ragpickers. We believe the best way is by equipping the needy with health, education and employable skills so they attain socio-economic independence and become responsible citizens of society. Our several projects in Health, Education and Community Development are inter-related and together provide a once-forgotten child or community a comprehensive road from poverty to prosperity.

  • AGRICULTURE AND ECOFEMINISM

    Agricultural extension work has a venerable, albeit largely unrecorded, history. It is a significant social innovation, an important force in agricultural change, which has been created and recreated, adapted and developed over the centuries. Its evolution extends over nearly four thousand years, although its modem forms are largely a product of the past two centuries. Today, the organizations and personnel engaged in agricultural extension encompass a diverse range of socially sanctioned and legitimate activities which seek to enlarge and improve the abilities of farm people to adopt more appropriate and often new practices and to adjust to changing conditions and societal needs.

  • CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

    Each year, nearly a million children are determined by child protective services to be the victims of abuse and/or neglect in this country, while many more are at risk. The majority of victims suffer from neglect, but some children also endure the effects of physical, psychological, or sexual abuse. It is estimated that in this country we will spend billions a year on direct and indirect effects of child abuse and neglect. In having prevention programs in the community, this reduces the risks of domestic violence, substance abuse, mental illness and child abuse.
