The International Women’s Day Programme was held at the YMCA Central Branch in association with Prem Dan, Garden School.

The mothers of the children in our ‘Balwadis’ came for the programme in large numbers and made the programme a great success.

Sumit Chauhan (Dance Instructor) at the Central Branch along with some students from the Typing Classes and the YMCA Dance class together presented a wonderful dance on the life of the Girl Child in India, also made all the women in the audience to dance along.

Ms. Khyati Shah a Software Engineer and a MBA, spoke to the women on how they need to build their lives and enhance their skills and also to somehow continue their education. She also encouraged the women to learn to do something e.g.  Mehendi, Tailoring,  Embroidery,  etc.  and have their own income which they can spend for their needs without spreading their hands in front of others.

At the end the women were given a memento and some snacks.
