Young Women Leadership Development Program

A core part of MJAS work is to build capacities of young girls and women as leaders of tomorrow through collective action for social transformation.

Through the work on young women’s leadership development, MJAS aims to address the vicious cycle of poverty, patriarchy and ignorance that has resulted in exclusion of women from social, political and economic spheres. It also provides a space for everyone to come together and fight for gender equality and justice. It builds confidence and self-sufficiency among girls and women through its various skill-based programmes. Working in rural as well as urban areas, MJAS aims at providing extending support through organising women’s groups at the village and community level.
