Case Studies

Our mission at Ahmedabad Women’s Action Group - AWAG is to empower women to survive and to develop their potential.

Our aim is to empower women through assertion of their individuality, to assist them in getting social justice and to help them to regain their health. We at AWAG, believe that when a woman’s self-awareness is raised, so is her self worth. We support women in getting social justice in their struggle to survive and develop as human beings.

We consider the raising of awareness as the first step towards empowerment and income generation as the second. A woman’s right to her body, her duty towards keeping it in good health and avoiding blind faith are considered equally important. We have a holistic approach to women’s empowerment and in tackling domestic violence in India.

We at AWAG advocate policy change, law reforms and improvements in the state system relating to status, position and welfare of women. We have so far provided assistance to thousands of women, inclusive of Dalit and minority classes.

Our aim is to:

  • Raise the image of women in society
  • Protest against elements in society which demean the image of women
  • Establish women’s equal status in society
  • Contribute to women’s participation in the development of the country
  • Support the rights of women to live with dignity and to support their welfare and education
  • Work for the economic betterment of poor women
