Recognize the Unrecognized
Women, an integral part of our life, works without a break for her family, her society and her friends all through the year. So, on “International Women’s Day” which is celebrated on March 8th, LEAD took an initiative of organizing an event “Recognizing the Unrecognized”. In this event LEADers of LEAD felicitated 18544 women. It is an approach where women of our society who are rarely recognized and are responsible for important works such as cleaning railway stations, bus stands, picking household trash, selling vegetables etc. were complimented. LEAD and LEADers believe, without these women the world would come to stand still.
The event was conducted by LEADers(Under Graduate and Masters pursuing College Youth) from each location of LEAD who had voluntarily taken up the leadership initiation to identify and appreciate the women on the occasion of Women’s Day. More than 250 students/leaders had taken the initiative from more than 100 colleges across 5 states (Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Maharashtra) of India. They touched lives of more than 8000 women.
Leaders had identified special women before 8th March. In identification work, they had taken the help of head of various government and private departments/offices, local people and through personal visit to the work place. On 7th March (pre event day) and on 8th March, the identified women were appreciated by LEADers at their work place and home. LEADers thanked them heartily with a self signed thanking and appreciating letter.
The uniqueness of this leadership event was that all the special women were identified by young college students/leaders and each appreciation letter were personally signed and given by these young students.
This event was conducted last year also where more than 200 students had taken the initiative and touched the lives of more than 2500 women.
This event was held at various locations of Karnataka such as Hubballi, Dharwad, Belgavi, Bijapur, Kalburgi, Davangere, Bidar, Chitradurga, Chikkodi, Naragund, Sirsi and Haveri. Apart from Karnataka, the event was also held at LEAD locations in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
