AWWA GOLDEN JUBILEE WOMEN EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOP
AWWA celebrated its Golden Jubilee year by conducting a program fora Veer Naaris in August 2016. The program was in association with (a joint collaboration of) VRFA and Pegasus Academy & Consulting, both based out of Bangalore. The program was designed to provide time and space for interactions and fun for the women folks while focusing on them being resourceful.
The two day session was based on the premise of experiential learning and brought about myriad emotions to the fore- tears, fun and laughter, all the while enabling bonding amongst women and letting them know that they are not alone.
