WomenStrong’s Consortium member Dhan Foundation is a veteran women’s economic empowerment and women’s rights organization in India that serves under-resourced communities across India, partnering with government, heath systems, the private sector and women’s empowerment NGOs.
Our Work Together
Dhan and WomenStrong start with the belief that nearly anything can be accomplished with patience, strategic leadership and faith in women’s and men’s capacity for growth, learning and fulfillment. In the slums of Madurai, WomenStrong and Dhan offer anemia and cancer screenings, legal clinics and extensive leadership training. Work is conducted through women’s and girls’ Self-Help Groups, where savings programs serve as catalysts for women’s taking the lead in acquiring financial literacy, job skills and vital health information, mobilizing against domestic violence, and improving their housing and community infrastructure.
