Economic empowerment of women is essential both for holistic empowerment and to achieve broader development goals like poverty reduction, health, education and welfare. It is a powerful tool that promotes women’s ability to achieve their rights and well being while also reducing household poverty and increasing economic growth.
To fulfill its vision of Social, Economic and Cultural Empowerment of Women in the state of Bihar, Women & Child Development Corporation has set up a Project Implementation Unit (PIU) to implement social and economic empowerment schemes
The Economic Empowerment component of PIU envisions to ‘Promote Women’s economic empowerment through entrepreneurship promotion and enhance employment opportunities for them in the state of Bihar’.
The three year project will cover all 38 districts of Bihar with special focus on Patna district in the beginning.
