Women Economic Empowerment

Indigenous women have been largely excluded in economic opportunities due to societal norms, existence of non-gender responsive policies, limited access to information and financial opportunities, limited access to market linkages, patriarchal cultures that undermines their roles in communities and poor infrastructure limiting access to essential services. 

To build an empowered society, SWT deploys various strategies driven towards empowering indigenous women and girls.
