Women Who Stand Up To Stand Out Deserves Recognition

The Logical Indian

March 6th, 2015

We celebrate the achievements of the women who bring laurels to our country or make their presence felt. Just like we celebrated wrestler Sakshi Malik’s achievement when she won a Bronze for India in the Olympics last year. But we forget that there are Sakshis everywhere who are grappling everyday odds and making a mark in their respective fields.

We might not know these women, but that doesn’t mean they are in any way inferior. We see them around us as engineers, doctors, nurses, pilots who are all doing their jobs with enormous hard work and dedication. They all have strong willpower to overcome challenges. They are focused on the work they do, and even if they bend to the hardships — they know how to stand up again and fight the next round with integrity. There are thousands Sakshis who are making our country proud. And all of them need recognition for their efforts.

The JSW Foundation is saluting all these women by nurturing their talents and taking care of their needs, and thus, helping them unleash the Sakshis within.



The organisation is dedicatedly working towards the betterment for the cause related to children, adolescent girls, women and beyond – upholding its philosophy of ‘Janam Se Janani Jak’ (JSJT).

Through JSJT, the JSW Foundation reaches out to the girl child and takes care of all her needs. Right from her schooling, to training her in a vocational skill of her choice in her adolescent years, up until the time she is a mother. The cycle of employment continues in a loop. The campaign also includes taking care of vulnerable women to undergo various skill training programs and small-scale enterprises, so that they can work themselves to restore their pride and dignity.

The initiative provides education, healthcare and vocational training to every girl across 1,000 villages in nine states of the country.

JSJT aims to create an ideal scenario where women and girls have access to quality education, healthcare and livelihood skills. They help them build their own destiny and empower them to take vital decisions in their family and society at large.

So far the initiative has provided nutrition support to over 35,000 children/women. Over 6,000 youth have gained employable skills. More than 10,000 women together, 20 self-help enterprises are running successfully.

This Women’s day let us help the women recognise their inner Sakshis.
