Launching & Orientation Of Women Empowerment Program – 9th & 10th March 2016.

MISEREOR KZE sanctioned the continuation phase of Women Empowerment Program – 321-908-1064 ZG for the period January 2016 to December 2018.

It was officially launched on 09.03.2016 with lighting of the lamp. Most Rev. Dr. Robert Miranda, Bishop of Gulbarga addressed the Diocesan Staff implementing the program in the State of Karnataka to relentlessly work for the upliftment of the marginalized community as there was lopsided development in the State of Karnataka. He gave the example of how this was visible as the women of Southern part of Karnataka were far ahead compared to the women in North Karnataka as literacy level was still to catch up in North Karnataka besides the customs, traditions and gender bias was not conducive for education of the girl child. He also reminded the participants that they should not compare the honorarium they receive with the work entrusted to them as the work that they were doing was for the greater good of the society and the results it produces far outweighs the honorarium.

Rev. Fr. Sebastian Fernandes, Director, KROSS explained the salient features of the program, its goal, objectives & activities and how we as a team could go about in achieving the desired results so that the women can one day definitely say we are masters of our own destiny.

Sr. Nancy Lobo, State Coordinator, KROSS coordinated the entire program. Ms Annie Anitha, KROSS compered the program. Sr. Lucia, KROSS welcomed the gathering. Ms Sudhamani, JVSSS, Mandya moderated the sessions and Mr. Jagdeesh, SMSSS, Shimoga proposed the vote of thanks.
