You as a women empowerment volunteer within this program will be given the opportunity to either simply participate /  conduct these workshops and mutual benefit.

Empowering women process will not only bring out leadership skills from the women being trained but will also teach them about independence, initiative, self-motivation, and raise awareness among them about how to take care of oneself. An international volunteer in this program will be given the freedom to create various activities that require the women to apply what they have learned from workshops.
