EmPOWER (2014 -17) was an intensive project that worked towards social, political and economic empowerment of women across three states – Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand. The project through its implementation (NGO) partners reached out to various beneficiaries including vulnerable populations such as religious minorities, Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) in project areas. The project primarily concentrated on providing social and legal support services to women who are/have been survivors of domestic violence and those who are in need of assistance or help. Simultaneously, awareness generation among communities and capacity building of stakeholders such as field workers, NGO staff, youth groups and community groups was another pillar of the project.
