BMI Trust teaches these children through various interactive projects and workshops on Environment, Biodiversity, solar and wind energy, automobiles, computers, health and hygiene, ecovillages and many more current topics.
Women's empowerment has five components: women's sense of self-worth; their right to have and to determine choices; their right to have access to opportunities and resources; their right to have the power to control their own lives, both within and outside the home; and their ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally.
Areas for which sound statistical information is known to be scarce are the effects of environmental degradation on women; causes and effects of migration; adolescent pregnancy and reproductive health; male roles and responsibilities in promoting women's empowerment and reproductive health; and the socio-economic implications of changing gender roles.
The role of equality in education in bringing about equality in all walks of life is well known and discussed in detail in the Basic Education Guidelines.
Violence against women is not the issue of any particular region or group; it is an ugly universal, crossing the frontiers of ideology, social class and ethnic identity.
