Swaayam - A Journey to Empowerment
The film, produced by UNDP India, illustrates how the UNDP-IKEA Foundation partnership ‘Swayaam’ is helping women across eastern Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state, break free from age-old restrictions and customs and become agents of change. The partnership, which began in 2009, has empowered 50,000 women to enhance incomes and effectively participate in and contribute to decision-making in domestic and public spheres. It is now being scaled up to reach out to 2.2 million women and their families, taking this integrated women’s empowerment model to four more states.
