  • The provision of opportunities and programs for female gender to be financially, mentally and emotionally empowered so as to promote their growth as individuals in their own right.
  • To make them aware about the guidelines of Supreme Court and to ensure that sexual harassment is treated as an uncceptable social behavior within the institution and the society.
