Besides being an educational institution dedicated for women education in general, we show a deep concern towards the issues faced by rural women. This College aims to become a venue for rural female folk to seek counseling and guidance regarding the issues they face as well as a platform where they can come together for exchanging their ideas and experiences regarding academic excellence, economic self-reliance, female health and hygiene in the socio-cultural and economic context of rural life. Rural population constitutes 86% of the total poulation of district Pulwama. Rural women are key agents for achieving the transformational economic, environmental and social changes required for sustainable development. But limited access to credit, health care and education are among the many challenges they face. Empowering them is key not only to the well-being of individuals, families and rural communities, but also to overall economic productivity. In India, Agriculture employs about 80 percent of rural women. We operate with a conviction that it is through the spread of education and awareness about health, hygiene, credit opportunities, government schemes like Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Program (PMEGP), National Livelihoods Mission, Deen Dayal Upadhayay Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY), Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana I (PMMVY) among rural women that the real social, cultural and economic transformation of the country can be brought about.
