Undeniably, India still is a male-dominated society. However, this stigma is gradually fading away. Aashray always works for women empowerment. One of our priority is educating the girl child. We also train women free of cost and impart skills in them so that they can be at par with others. We provide variety of training so that they can earn a living and contribute towards development of the society. We also help them financially to be self sufficient. We have training facilities in various districts including Purba Medinipur, Paschim Medinipur, Bankura, Malda, Birbhum, Hooghly, Alipurduar, Cooch Behar where women especially women from the lower strata of the society come and learn job oriented skills. In Kolkata we have a state-of-the-art training centre where women get professionally trained.
