Ujjval leadership workshop for women

Posted by Spalding Hurst

November 26, 2022

At Asha Deep Ujjval in Seelampur, Sisters organized a half-day leadership workshop for skills program trainees. Professor Naz Kher from Vidya Jyoti College, Delhi, was the resource person for the workshop. It was organized under the guidance of Father Victor Edwin, SJ, the chairperson of the Islamic Study Center. A total of 41 girls and women participated. The trainees freely shared their ideas and actively participated in the group discussions, which was an enriching experience for them.

The success story shared by Farheen, a friend of Naz Kher, inspired and motivated participants. Despite being handicapped, Farheen, with her grit, pursued higher education and landed herself employment and still aims to complete her master’s degree in Law. Her determination was an eye-opener and thought-provoking for all.

Asha Deep Ujjval staff and beneficiaries are grateful to Father Victor and his team for their generous help and support to the underprivileged sections in society.

    Congratulations, Pramila ans Team. Empowerment of women is not a theory, but real as you have shown it. I hope the participants use the wisdom gained for the benefit of their families and society.
