Women’s Day celebration in Palghar
To celebrate the spirit of the International Women’s Day, FGII team recently visited company adopted tribal hamlets.
The celebration began with a prayer that filled the atmosphere with positivity. Later, a session was conducted by ‘Andh Shraddha Nirmulan Sameeti’ on anti-superstition for the women. The women discovered the ills of superstition which greatly effects their families who fall prey to fake godmen (‘babas’ and ‘ojhas’) for many easily avoidable diseases.
Various myths were debunked during the session by discussing the science behind those myths. This helped them to realise the various ways fake godmen mislead and cheat the public.
To encourage women participation, cookery competition was organised for them. They cooked various delicious and nutritious recipes and won prizes for the same. The women also had fun singing melodious songs and dancing on the beats of adiwasi songs.
