Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi , in his speech on Independence Day, emphasized on the urgent need for a change in societal values with regard to women’s empowerment and protection. Empowerment of women involves many things - economic opportunity, social equality, and personal rights. We are proud to be taking a step forward in this direction. Though many of the women in the village are educated, they are confined to household chores due to the lack of proper skill training. This Vocational Training Center and the Nari Shakti skill training programme will not only give the women self confidence, but it will also help them contribute to household income”.Prof. Mahesh Gandhi- Director General, JRE Group of Institution said, ‘JRE is proud to be a part of this initiative. Jaitpur is on close vicinity to our campus and we trust that we are nearing our goal of converting Jaitpur into a model village. Women empowerment is the need of the hour and we hope that this step taken by us will boost the confidence of the village women and will provide them an opportunity to become wage earners and self-reliant.’
