Empowerment Sessions

The Lotus Flower Women's Centres provide a safe and supportive space to host a variety of activities to complement our adult education and vocational training programs.  One of our aims is to offer regular awareness sessions on gender equality in order to combat discrimination and violence against women and girls.  

Our centres host weekly awareness sessions on topics such as early marriage, domestic violence, women's health issues, the importance of education for women and girls, and gender-based violence. 

In collaboration with our partners, the sessions are conducted by a specialist in that topic area and provide an opportunity for women and girls to discuss important gender issues that are considered taboo. Our community members are able to ask questions and discuss gender issues while finding creative solutions together and building a network of friendship and support. The sessions aim to crease their level of awareness, promote confidence, and provide support for self-empowerment.
