Mentoring Program for Women with Disabilities
The first phase of this program starts for Women with Disabilities on 8th March 2013 to mark the International Day of Women.
Women with disabilities remain invisible in our society. They need direct contact with other women with disabilities who are working in jobs or who are actively participating in family life or taking their rightful place in the community. It is through their presence and wisdom that other women with disabilities can be an asset, a source of resilience and creativity. For females who come from less than ideal circumstances, mentoring can be a critical ingredient towards positive educational and career growth outcomes.
There is dearth of role models, mentors and muses for the women with disabilities particularly for those who are living in small towns and far flung areas. With this program of ours women with disabilities would have access to a range of successful women with and with disabilities, who could provide support and inspiration in a variety of ways.
