What We Do

The Strategic Approach of WHR

WHR has been a pioneer in addressing single women’s issues and envisions changing traditional stereotypes and mindsets that keep single women from participating and accessing resources. We strive to change discriminatory policies to give women their rights and show that they are valuable social capital.
WHR’s strategic plan (2009-2013) focuses on five pillars.

Advocacy And Social Mobilization (Pillar I)

Focuses on socio-cultural aspects of single women and creates awareness for victims of cultural torture and perpetrators of such torture. The intention is to help build a more tolerant society through education and advocacy.

Opportunity Fund has been established to provide scholarship to the needy children of single women and young single women as well as to support single women for their emergency need. Opportunity fund also helps in building Chhahari at different districts.

Furthermore the fund has also provided educational material as a support to conflict affected children.

Opportunity Fund has provided scholarship to 1144 children of single women and to 102 single women to pursue higher education so far (September 2012).

It has helped in forming “Sachetana” Youth Club, which mobilizes for public awareness in the issues of single women.
