Dear Friends,
“Strong Women are women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved, women who live bravely, both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will”. I am proud to concede Soroptimist International sisters are strong women dedicate themselves in transformation of society.
The status of women in the modern era is still a paradox. Women who performs multiple roles in family as well as in her carrier faces various challenges such us emotional, sexual, psychological and social stereotyping. Women become subjects of violence in the family, at workplace and in the society. Lack of power and inability to take Independent decisions obstruct her from reaching the heights. These issues have severe impact on their physical and mental well being.
Good Mental Health is the greatest gift, Contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. Its fundamental of thriving in life which helps a woman climb up the ladder of success.
SI Madurai Chapter steps out of the shadows to enhance the Mental Health of Women and Girls in par with our International Theme” Think On It” with strategic priority on Mental Health for Women and Children. Our programmes and projects would give tremendous effort in different dimensions such us physical, psychological and social wellbeing which ultimately enhance the mental health of the woman.
We will involve the activities for NASI and SIGBI and strengthen our relationship in National and International level. I determined to carry out research studies( Intervention study) of families of mentally ill patients and promote nutrition securely of the poor households through home gardens.
Our programmes and projects are structured to benefits of our own SI Madurai Chapter and public by building capability to explore and take bold actions in shaping the world
I owe my gratitude to my fellow sisters, sisters clubs, well wishers, sponsors, donors, our friendship links, SIGBI, NASI of India.
