Tiruvannamalai Womens' Self Help Groups

Occasionally on the side of houses and/or shops one sees slogans and information about the burgeoning and increasingly popular different Womens’ Groups here at Tiruvannamalai that are engaged in: self-development, family, studies, self-employment, gaining of self-confidence to integrate into society, handicrafts and skill learning and political involvement. 

Its excellent to see Women of this area receive help and support to learn skills and the subsequent self-confidence so that their voices may be better heard in society. A number of charitable organisations (such as Shantimalai Trust) have been in the forefront in South India in promoting Womens' Self Help Groups. 

Unity, Self-Confidence, Learning, Spiritual Thinking, Security and Development

Girl Power -- i.e. essential power. The ladies of Tamil Nadu need to start having confidence in themselves and realise that they are 50% of the population.
