Yet another milestone to be proud of Jyothirgamaya Foundation.
Jyothirgamaya, after a long while especially after the pandemic held another grant successful event, a workshop for the empowerment of visually impaired women “WOMEN WITH WINGS”.
Women have no barriers; Women can open their wings and fly. This is the message that this empowerment program conveys. On the 13th of August our organisation held “WOMEN WITH WINGS” workshop which was inaugurated by a few eminent guests who had crossed many hurdles and who have achieved many milestones in the field of women empowerment.
