Women Trained For Disaster Management

An organisation in Uttarakhand trains women in rescue and relief efforts. Luxmi has been associated with this organisation, the Bhuvaneshwari Ashram, for many years. In her video today, she shows us a new program they have developed to train young women in rescue and relief skills. Uttarakhand has a high rate of natural disasters - landslides, flooding, earthquakes - and many people have perished without adequate and timely support from the government. Roads and infrastructure have routinely been destroyed and villages submerged. This program is inspiring to Luxmi because it's empowering women to be helpers in their community and have the necessary skills to save people from dangerous situations.
