In India, there is no shortage of women leaders, from the Prime Minister of India to the President of the United States.
The problem is that there is little or no funding for them.
The Women’s College of India, which is funded by the Government of India and was founded in 1955, has an average of less than 100 women students.
India has only two universities for women – the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University in Mumbai and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Bangalore – but both are among the top ranked in the world.
The government has made efforts to fund women’s education through a few initiatives, but funding is not enough to equip all women with the skills they need to make it to the next level in the job market.
In order to get the funding to train more women, India needs to start addressing the root causes of gender inequality in the country.
“Women’s colleges have a role to play in strengthening the workforce and empowering the next generation of women.
But they also have a huge role to offer to society.
The best solution is for them to focus on creating jobs for women and empowering women to achieve more,” said Anil Madhavan, president of the National Council for Women in India.
“Achieving a high quality education for all women is the key to empowering women and creating a more equal society,” she added.
Madhavan also said the government should consider creating a national fund for women’s colleges, which would help them to fund the women’s college’s operating costs.
“We are not going to get a million dollars for women to pay for the college itself, but instead the government needs to consider a national scholarship for them,” Madhav said.
Nashik is a small city of over 12,000 people located in eastern Maharashtra.
It is home to a large number of women entrepreneurs and professionals, including a number of prominent women in the financial sector.
The city is also home to several private colleges.
According to the National Rural Health Mission, only 1.5% of the rural population is enrolled in women-led private colleges, while about 15% of women in rural India are illiterate, and about 70% of them do not speak a single language.
The number of private colleges has been on the decline over the past decades, according to data compiled by the National Women’s Council (NWMC).
In 2017, the NWMC, which coordinates the Women Entrepreneurship Initiative in India (WEI), reported that women-dominated private schools were losing money at an average rate of 6.2% a year.
Anita Gopal, a former president of Nishik and the director of the Nashik Women Entrepreneurial Center, said in order to provide quality education to the students in rural areas, it is crucial to have more women in leadership roles in the private sector.
“Private colleges need to create a vision for the future and start educating the next generations of women who want to get into a better career path,” Gopal said.
In 2016, the Nishik Entrepreneur Development Society (NEDS) launched the Nashika Women Entreprenerement Scholarship Program, which provided scholarships for the students to be awarded scholarships at private colleges for two years.NEDA was launched in 2005, with the aim of empowering women in India’s rural areas.
In 2017 alone, the NEDA scholarship program helped more than 15,000 students achieve scholarships.”NEDa has been successful in empowering women entrepreneurs, and in 2017, we have seen that more than 20,000 women entrepreneurs have achieved scholarships, but they have only received Rs. 10 lakh (Rs.
15,100) each,” Gopi Bhatia, chief executive of Nishika Entrepreneurs, told The Daily Star.
Bhatia said the goal is to help 100,000 rural women achieve scholarships by 2021.
The aim of the scholarship program is to give women in every village, village or hamlet in India the opportunity to reach their dream of becoming entrepreneurs.
In the first year of the NEE program, there were about 10,000 scholarships awarded to women entrepreneurs in Nashik.
According to Bhatya, more than 200 girls from Nashik had been awarded scholarships for two-year scholarships, which have been shared with other women entrepreneurs.
The NEE scholarship program also helped more women than men achieve scholarships for their second and third years of the program.
Asha Shah, an associate professor at the University of Nashik and a leading women entrepreneurship scholar, said it was important for the government to invest in these women entrepreneurs who have the potential to be leaders in the future.
“I believe that these girls will make a difference in the lives of people who are less well off,” Shah said.
“I believe these women will make an impact on their communities.
