Women Empowerment and Care for Senior Citizens
Women and senior citizens are one of the most marginalized and least empowered sections of our society. The fight for equal
right for women is far from won as there is still sever discrimination and acts of violence against them in rural as well as urban parts of India. Senior Citizens are an integral part of our population who are neglected across areas of policy and at times do not receive the amenities they are entitled to. SBI Foundation feels that these sections of our population need to be served with dignity and care so as to empower them to create an equal society.
