The VRFA team has been trained to conduct workshops for the families of martyrs to help them come to terms with their loss, regain their confidence, and build trust in each other. Through these programs, we have seen women raise their self-worth and realise their strengths and potential. This is the first step to building a sustainable future for themselves.

Women, from here on, are in a better position to discern and decide on the best possible steps they need to take in order to secure jobs, or even enrol for additional training. The children are also able to understand the situation their mothers face and older kids pitch in with jobs and helping around the house. in tempus.

We also tie up with other organizations such as the Pegasus Institute for Excellence, Samvada, and Anekataa to conduct empowerment programs for the women and children. Empowerment programs are conducted biannually. Additionally, we have regular workshops teach computers and English classes.

Giving women the opportunities they need to build better futures for themselves and their families require many people coming together and offering their skills, expertise, and services. We have seen a tremendous response from organizations that share similar goals. There is always more work to be done, more families to reach out to, and as we think of expanding our sphere of influence, we are looking to partner with more organizations and individuals who are committed to making a difference.

Our empowerment programs have changed lives. Here’s what some of them have to say about it:

“We were given Empowerment training in management of Personal Finances, Computer Literacy and English speaking over the last 6 years by way of regular workshops. Both my children and me immensely benefited from the training imparted to us. Earlier we were afraid to go out of our home but now we feel confident of travelling even to distant places and to visit Government offices to get our work done.”



Started as a support system for the families of Jawans martyred in the service of the nation, the VRFA works with over a 120 wives and children to bring a renewed sense of belonging, purpose, and independence to their lives.
