Caravan Flagged off to Promote Women's Empowerment


Patna: The Hunger Project in Bihar on Tuesday flagged off a 'Leadership Caravan' that would visit a number of districts in Bihar to raise awareness of women's empowerment and make women in rural areas aware of their rights and entitlements.

The caravan began its journey from the Mahatma Gandhi statue at the Gandhi Maidan following the flagging off of the caravan by Panchayati Raj expert Tej Narayan Singh.

"While the fact that the women have been given 50% reservation in the Panchayat elections is something to be celebrated, they still remain woefully unaware of their constitutional rights and privileges, particularly in the rural areas. With this campaign, we hope to raise awareness among them so they are not left behind on the path to progress and development," Singh said.

The caravan is scheduled to visit Jehanabad, Muzaffarpur, Madhubani, Rohtas, Kaimur, Gaya, Bhagalpur, Jamui, Munger, Darbhanga, and Motihari in the next several weeks.
