Women work without a break for their families, society, and friends all through the year. So, on IWD 2017, LEAD conducted their 5th annual "Recognizing the Unrecognized", where women in our society who are rarely recognized but are responsible for important work were recognized for their contributions, such as cleaning railway stations, bus stands, picking household trash, selling vegetables etc. we believe that, without these women, our communities would come to a standstill.
LEADers from each location of LEAD voluntarily took up the initiative to identify and appreciate these women on the occasion of International Women's Day. After identifying these unrecognized women in their communities, the LEADers made personal visits to their homes and workplaces to thank them for their contributions and presented a certificate of gratitude they personally signed.
Students noted that this project helped them improve their communication skills and confidence, as each LEADer approached and spoke to hundreds of women from all different professions, backgrounds, statuses, and levels of education.
