For most of us, the idea of winters is to sit comfortably at our home, wrapped in blankets while sipping hot tea. However, for those living on the streets, survival is all they care about, which becomes more challenging as temperatures drop each day.
Finding an underprivileged person, trying to survive the wrath of winter, is not that hard. Once you go out on a drive with your car heaters on, these people search for a warm spot to sleep (which most of the time they don’t find). It is a grave condition. Sometimes they just go to sleep and never wake up.
Every year, our organization, Hastaprada, organizes a campaign to provide high-quality blankets to those in need, including the homeless, rickshaw pullers, balloon sellers, vegetable sellers, women, kids, etc.
These blankets are made from high-quality wool that can store heat and keep their body warm. Apart from the blankets, we also provide them with old winter clothing, carpets, dry ration, dignity kits, gloves, hats, earmuffs, body warmers, etc., that can help them stay warm and survive the winter season.
As you know, no gift is better than warmth during a cold day; therefore, Hastaprad welcomes any donation that you can provide. You can participate by donating your old winter clothing and blankets to Hastaprada and help us in our initiative. If you are unable to contribute material, you can help us with funds, and we can assure you that we use it to help the underprivileged survive the biting cold.
Gender inequality affects an individual’s living experience, and women face its consequences more than men. Gender inequality has influenced women’s life expectancy, education, decision-making power, and the freedom to live a healthy life without any discrimination or violence.
The toxic patriarchal society has made it crucial for every woman to become empowered, independent, and fight for their rights, bringing about a change so that both men and women are treated as equals.
Discrimination against women starts right at birth. Over two lakh young girls under the age of five are killed each year because of their gender. Around 1 in 20 of the 13 million girls between the age of 15 and 19 have experienced forced sex in their lifetimes. Also, on average, there’s at least one episode of violence against women every 20 minutes.
Such harmful gender norms have sustained and at the highest levels since the stone-age. They have perpetuated to the extent that laws and policies were imposed that treat women and men differently. For example, in some countries, laws have restricted women from inheriting property.
Women are not given any education except how to do chores at home and silently bear the pain of domestic violence. Men are more supported than women when it comes to studies and chasing after their dreams; therefore, 1 in 4 girls neither receive quality education nor any training, which will make them qualified for being hired.
Gender inequality is practiced in offices as well; men are the preferred gender even though women are more qualified. Apart from this, there are differences between their salaries – men are paid higher salaries than women.
Men also face discrimination, but the severity is not the same. Gender inequality massively affects a woman’s living experience and their consequences are deadly. By donating for women empowerment, you will be helping millions of women understand their rights, fight for themselves, and proudly face the world.
