Empowering Marginalized Women - Unleashing Potential through UPASANAs Webinar

In our relentless pursuit in empowering women and providing them with the tools to build a better future, SMF recently conducted a highly anticipated webinar for the tenth batch of UPASANA with the prospective candidates. This webinar marked a crucial milestone in the recruitment process, serving as a platform to inspire and guide passionate women about what is to be expected and how they can realise their aspirations. The webinar garnered an overwhelming response, reinforcing our belief in the transformative potential of UPASANA.

Setting the Tone for Aspiration and Growth:
The webinar, held on 23rd June 2023, was a momentous occasion where graduate women aspiring to become after-school educators gathered to embark on a life-changing journey. It was designed to set the tone for what the candidates could expect from the UPASANA program and the commitment required to turn their aspirations into reality. Ms. Seethalakshmi, a beacon of inspiration herself, passionately conveyed the vision of UPASANA and the immense opportunities that lay ahead for these courageous women.

The Importance of the Webinar:
The webinar served as a crucial step in identifying individuals who possess the drive, passion, and determination to make a difference in their lives and the lives of the primary school children in their communities. It provided a comprehensive overview of the UPASANA program, highlighting the 6-month journey and what lies thereafter. The candidates gained insights into the program's curriculum, methodologies used, and the practical skills they would acquire through classroom sessions and on the job training (OJT).

Tremendous Response and Shraddha Maanu's Delight:
The response to the webinar was nothing short of astounding. Candidates from diverse backgrounds, and walks of life joined the virtual gathering, demonstrating their eagerness to seize this empowering opportunity. We, at Shraddha Maanu were delighted to witness the tremendous enthusiasm and interest expressed by the participants. The overwhelming response reaffirmed our belief in the potential of women to create a positive impact and thereby build capacity to provide quality education to children who need it the most.

A Transformative Journey Begins:
With the successful completion of the webinar, the candidates will now undergo an assessment process. This evaluation will play a pivotal role in selecting individuals for the upcoming batch of the UPASANA after school educators' training program for primary school children.

The resounding success of the webinar has laid a solid foundation for the next phase, reaffirming SMF's commitment to empowering women and providing them the agency to build sustainable livelihoods. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants for their unwavering enthusiasm and determination. We, at Shraddha Maanu are filled with immense joy and pride, and are eager to witness the the journey that lies ahead for these aspiring women.

UPASANA continues to ignite the flames of empowerment and inspiring women especially from socio economically weaker sections, to rewrite their stories. We remain dedicated to creating a ripple effect of positive change and redefining education for the underprivileged children in their foundational years.
