Enterprising Women for Leadership & Change (EWLC)
It is now an established fact that in the quest for sustainable development, women are the main drivers to bring about meaningful change. However, it is regretful to note that gender parity and discrimination are still widespread in our society. EWLC comes off the beaten off to champion enterprising women joining hands to empower the womenfolk and build our common future. ‘Enterprising’ women also lays emphasis on how women can engineer their own future by discovering and believing in their inner potentials.
Women empowerment forms an integral part of ANPRAS’s agenda. However, this was quite diffused; thus the need to create a special entity to champion the causes and advancement of the women. Today, ANPRAS prides itself to have women assuming key leadership roles across the organization and hence the reason for the creation of this particular unit.
The EWLC project was officially launched on 01st March 2018 as ANPRAS kicks-started the International Women’s Day celebrations at Midlands.
