Women bear almost all responsibility for meeting basic needs of the family, yet are systematically denied the resources, information and freedom of action they need to fulfill this responsibility. They are neglected in society, as a result they became illiterate, poor and malnourished. We at DMFCCF believe that empowering women is the key to change the poverty, uplift underprivileged urban women for a Positive Social Change. Wherever we work, our programs aim to support women and build their capacity.
