We are delighted to share with you a booklet titled "You gave me a chance", which covers the work done by WOTR under the 'Chance for girls project' in 344 villages of Maharashtra. The project was done in collaboration with the Germany-based Becker-Cordes Stiftung and the Rotary Clubs of Hagenn-Lenne & Lippetal.
In this issue of Ecologic, we bring to you five stories of women’s empowerment - from taking initiative to solve social issues in the village, to revolutionising rice cultivation and collective efforts of men and women to shift to organic farming. We also have a final guest article that highlights the need for a market oriented approach in women’s empowerment projects. We hope these will be thought provoking and prompt you to revert with feedback on how we continue to evolve while embarking on the next phase of WOTR’s engagement in sustainable development.
