To make the community financially strong and raising their economic leadership SWS works
for enhancing skills of community by mobilizing, organizing and training on their
traditional livelihood sources so that it could become more sustainable livelihood
source. For this SWS works in cluster approach and linkages of all possible fronts is
Livelihood is the major sector where SWS intervenes and basically works with artisans as
this community face the challenge of losing their traditional occupation on one hand and
on the other hand the challenge of adopting themselves to other livelihood sources (i.e.
labour/wage worker, etc.)
SWS look at gender equity as an issue which is associated with every sector whether it
is livelihood or health, governance or education. We believe that until and unless we
don’t take gender equity in every action it is quite impossible to bring it in society
in real. So, whatever SWS do the concept of gender equity is inbuilt in every action.
Also, we believe that not only women but men and boys must be educated on gender
sensitization and impact of violence or abuse on women and girls lives and on the
society as a whole. Because mostly its men and boys who create the problems of violence
and abuse while women and girls are the sufferers. So it is equally important to educate
men and boys on gender as it is important to make women and girls more self-dependant.
Sensitization of community on health services, capacity building on community based
monitoring of health services especially maternal and adolescent health as well as
community based management of anemia, malnutrition and prevention of diseases like
malaria etc. and advocacy on health issues with various stakeholders at various levels
are the main focus of SWS.
SWS works for empowering women and youth participation in political arena by
educating, awaring and raising their knowledge through training, capacity building and
exposure on various issues related to local self-governance as right to vote,
participation and role in decision making in local governance systems by involving
active and democratic participation of youth and women
