Sevalaya focusing on Women Empowerment and opened our Women Empowerment Through Education (WETE) Project  in Ayalur Village, Thiruvallur District, with a view to eradicate Women-illiteracy in the village.  This centre will function exclusively  to educate women. The uniqueness of this initiative is that Sevalaya’s alumni group and  children of Sevalaya’s Mahakavi Bharatiyar Higher Secondary School,  will take classes for the  village women. With this unique idea the centre has been inaugurated by Ms. Anu Oza, a noted Social activist (Daughter of Mr. Oza, I.A.S. Retd.) has taken keen interest to evolve working and planning to pursue this project effectively.

Over 200 persons from the nearby villages participated in the function. Besides, foreign volunteers , who take keen interest in Sevalaya’s activities also attended.  The Women participated were  taught alphabets on the first day. It is gratifying to note that all the participants showed good interest.

Ms. Pavithra, an alumnus of Sevalaya, a B.Sc., graduate,    has  been appointed as the Co-ordinator of the centre, in taking classes and running effectively. Participants hailed this initiative as a fitting  and purposeful one on the International Women’s Day.
