PRAHAR provide elementary and fundamental education as well as higher education to women so that they can take part in all activities of society whether they belong to any financial, national and international, social or domestic affairs. We ensure that women will not be discriminated against based on their sex. We arranged programmes, workshops, on human rights for women so that they can be aware of their rights covering all social, political and economical aspects as well as they can actively take part on democratic and development process of the state. Women belonging to developing countries, living in villages and towns outside medium and big cities, suffer from multiple drastic problems in terms of conventional drifts, discrimination and family suffering in general. Therefore PRAHAR has conducting not only basic education but also various skill development programmes, technical trainings, workshops, and awareness programmes so that they can be self employed and self reliable. PRAHAR promoted innovative design makings by Lady Entrepreneurs. PRAHAR also formulated self help groups for the socio-economic development of women of both rural and urban areas and provided all necessary help for up gradation of the groups by trainings, proper monitoring and link up with the funding agencies. PRAHAR adopted adequate policies for generation of awareness among women beneficiaries for social welfare programmes. PRAHAR has been undertaking a lot of awareness activity since its inception. Women are the basic unit of society, as women makes a family, family makes a home and home makes a society. But it is seen that violence and discriminations always starts from their own homes by their own family members. Now a days, level of domestic violence increases mostly on developing countries. Hence, PRAHAR offered special awareness and training programmes for women on domestic violence so that they can resist misbehaves, discriminations and violence and speak up for their rights. No development is possible if there is no education. A good healthy society doesn't habitually appear on its own and for its emergence women play a key role. Taking this on mind, PRAHAR always endeavours to empower women on their grassroots level.
