Women Development and Empowerment is one of the prime Objectives of CARES. Women’s socio-political participation will bring empowerment and equality in many levels, but in a country which has countless castes & sub-castes, religions, rituals, customs etc. it is not easily possible. But if they economically sustained the dependency will be reduced that make them to come out into mainstreams and utilize opportunities, fight for their Rights and bring changes in many realms that do not consider them even as women – equal part of humankind!
CARES has resource persons, resource materials like charts, books, flips, audio-visual aids, projectors and other necessary items with a good and competent team of presenters, volunteers and documentation wing too.
The CARES has now a strong network of local NGOs for this cause, 600 CBOs (Women SHGs/Farmers Clubs etc.) it has formed and nurtured over the 9 districts of the sate Andhra Pradesh women networks. The CARES invites voluntary partnership in its all activities and projects from NGOs, CBOs etc towards this cause.
As there multiple obstacles and hindrances among which non-income and dependency of women and the caste systems and religious rituals and followings are main ones, CARES presently give prioritized efforts on these two and strong awareness creation and capacity building activities alongside networks to have political social and intellectual recognition of women for making them to come to a common platform.

OUR ADDED VALUES

Apart from the above mentioned projects and activities CARES also take-up few other programmes and activities under the theme. They are, though constraints financially, CARES never goes back for they are 100% need based and cannot be stopped. They are Income/Livelihood generations & Enterprise establishments, Old Age Homes, Developing Networks for Women’s Socio-Political-Rights promotions etc.
As India which is the contributor of 4 world religions and a number of adopted religions, having more than 1560 languages, cultures, followings, with more than 25000 castes and sub castes with various religious norms, it is a strenuous effort to bring practically women in accordance to a common platform. Male dominant societal restrictions, religious practices, women’s non-income status and all exacerbate the condition.
