Educated in science, am a post graduate in Psychology. Freelancer Social work. Born in Haflong assam. Grew up in the hills. lived near the Brahmaputra river. Struggled, fought to survive the harshness and cruelty of a society so constrained restricted and merciless. A society which will still have no remorse if meek defenseless women died.
Exhibit change by:
I have had very little opportunity to help condemned beaten battered women, but I would like to help them, pull them out of the gutters they have been pushed into.
Education, even primary education is what many village women need, of any community. vocational training to them....to stop child marriages which are still alive, specially in rajasthan. Stop selling of young women even child girls to men ,taking money by Parents and/or brother. if the girl is battered thrown out, then she is sold to another man. this time the parents and the former husband all recieve money.... maybe sold 9 times or 10 times.... the custom is called Nata-Sata
I'm passionate about:
Try to bring about changes: quality of Life for the Poor, downtrodden people. help educate girls, women, at least basic education for village women.
Rescue missions or psychological support for women who are victims of home violences, either by their husbands, or brothers or father even. rehabilitation for women battered, beaten , thrown out, or made mentally broken/deranged by continuous violence.
Protecting young girls from being sold by their fathers or husbands over and over again to another"husband"
Equality to women.
removing Social stigmas, superstitions, false social norms that destroy the lives of women and men, in the process.

The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is a historic and unprecedented effort of the U.S. government to take leadership in establishing an overall and integrated approach to respond and address violence against women and girls internationally. The Act establishes a Coordinator to Combat Violence Against Women Internationally. The time is now to capitalize on this awareness and support and to enact this comprehensive vision to address the problem of violence against women.
Help End Women's Poverty: Support the GROWTH Act
The Global Resources and Opportunities for Women to Thrive (GROWTH) Act would address some of the most critical economic barriers women that keep women in poor countries from earning an income, barriers such as unequal property rights, lack of access to credit and trade, and poor wages and working conditions.

It's estimated that 1 out of 3 women worldwide will be the victim of violence or abuse at some point in their lives. This must stop.
The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), is a bill now before Congress that, if passed, would, for the first time, comprehensively incorporate these solutions into all U.S. foreign assistance programs - solutions such as promoting women's economic opportunity, addressing violence against girls in school, and working to change public attitudes - bring about transformational change.
