Collaborated with the Panchayat Samiti, Shahpur

Collaborated with the Panchayat Samiti, Shahpur for organising a month long programme on women’s empowerment from the 26th of February to the 25th of March 2015. Themed ‘Mahila Arogya Saptapadi’ or Seven Steps to Women’s health, this programme was taken to all the nine primary health centres of Shahpur taluka. Women in the reproductive age group were specifically targeted and told about the importance of family planning and the need to talk about it openly in the family. The message given to them was that they have to power to take decisions on when to start a family, how to space between children. They were also told about the modern spacing methods.
