For a decade Mahila Margadarshi has been a leader in helping women to realize their potential. We believe that investing in women fundamentally strengthens families and societies. Our Women's Empowerment Program develops women's leadership, strengthens women's organizations, increases women's rights and ensures their personal security, and creates new economic opportunities for women. Our programs transfer tools, strategies, and lessons learned, foster synergies, and promote cooperation within and across borders. Providing linkages with like-minded allies in government and civil society and with international networks and organizations creates greater support for their efforts so that reform is promoted from within and from without.
