Empower Women - The Hope Project

Empower Women - The Hope Project

Every time we hear intellectuals talking about empowering women in various sectors of life,we also become part of those discussions but when it really comes to helping them to make them self sustainable we pull our hands out of such matters. do the opposite of that this organisation is helping women and other groups by providing a platform where each of us can contribute to empower them. The women who are victims of age old Devdasi system are standing on their feet by their strong will power and helps by various NGOs. Milaap comes in between these projects to strengthen their hopes by connecting their cause to millions around the world which then provide them with required money. The money is returned to the lender after a stipulated time. The Hope Project thus uplifting the status of these women entangled in Devdasi system to be master of their own fate instead of reducing themselves to mere Temple Prostitutes.

These women have stood against their exploitation by the rich and powerful people of their villages and are now making efforts to earn their living by doing different works. Their projects need certain amount of money to come in shape, some of them wants to expand their already existing businesses while some only needs things like solar lamps or toilets or clean water. Take Runa Layla Shake and Group of West Bengal for example. They are a group of 20 women working in agriculture jobs they just want solar lamps to save their money wasted in kerosene lamps during long power cuts. These lamps will make life of their families more productive and peaceful. Small contributions can make a big change to their lives. You can help this group by visiting below link:

Other women groups like that of Shanti of Tamil Nadu needs money to start masala making business. They have learned these skills of masala making after years of labour. They need only Rs 50,000 for this task a amount which we easily spend on a new smart phone or holidays or any other things of luxury. I am not saying that you should not buy such things I am only suggesting to halt them for a while and help them to make a new start. 

You can also help in other causes of your choice by visiting either

Change comes if we take things in our hand instead of blaming system and governments.Mahatma Gandhi once said that empowering a women means empowering a home thus empowering the village,the town,the state,the district and the country. Here by contributing even small amounts for the hope project we can help transforming many lives and in doing so we will also become a part of the movement which is igniting hopes in millions of people.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…

An Ode To Teachers

An Ode To Teachers.

Teachers play an important role in shaping our life. If you are among privileged who took formal education or even when you are among the non-educated there are people in your life who teach you something or the other in course of journey of life. Apart from life I have learnt many things from many teachers I encountered in life whether it’s about subject like Science, History, Literature, Geography or things helpful in daily life which make us more experience. 
Naming any one teacher will devalue the contribution of others. So I restrict myself from naming anybody and before going further with the topic I like to remember my English teacher whose death news I have heard recently. He taught me English from Seventh to Tenth class. He depends on his life experiences while teaching than on bookish knowledge. We used to enjoy his classes. I was a bright student and teacher’s favorite but on two occasions in my school life I got slapped. Once in first class when as a m…
