A lot of the issues women face today can be traced back to deeply entrenched patriarchal views as well as a lack of understanding about gender and its impact on social, political and economic rights. Udaan’s Project Perinaya looks at dismantling and questioning harmful long term beliefs and superstitions that have thus far held women back from reaching their full potential. Under Project Perinaya the concept of gender and gender issues will be explored in a non‐ confrontational manner through well designed workshops that employ participatory methods. The content will be kept simple and easy to understand, without compromising on the desired impact.
This Project will also lay the foundation for the implementation of other Udaan projects, as we believe that it is only with a thorough understanding of the problem and its implications that we will be able to garner the complete support and participation of beneficiaries.
