Around the world women are making huge strides as leaders, innovators and bread winners.
Girls are the future mothers of any society. Every girl that receives an education is more likely to make education a priority for her children. It's a ripple effect of positive change in the community and country.
Gender equality and the empowerment of women is critical for a bright stable future.
Many Inner Wheel clubs in India supported the cause to create awareness on the Progress of Women through Education.
As part of International Women's Day “Safar Stri Swabhiman ka Astitva ka” meaning, a Journey for Women's self respect and identity. was launched.
"Mission on Wheels" an All - Women Car Drive supported by Inner Wheel was steered by Ms. Kanta Kapoor District ISO , District 308 along with Dipti Shankar and teammate Shahnaz through 11 states of India. The car traversed 6000 kilometers through 11 Inner Wheel districts (301,305,306,303,313,302,326,329,325,312,311 ) meeting the public to create an awareness on the work done by Inner Wheel in the field of literacy, vocational training, education and women's health.
The car was flagged off on the 1st of March by our IIW Vice President Dr. Kapila Gupta in the presence of PIIWP Minna Kapur from Gurgaon.
This idea was the brain child of our Association President Prabha Raghunandan who strongly believes that when you educate a girl child about herself and her strengths, you empower a nation. Empowering women, empowers humanity.
The drive finished on the 11th of March at New Delhi and the team " Mission on Wheels " was given a warm reception.
The reception ABHINANDAN was a grand event hosted by IWC Delhi Midtown, District 301.
