As a multi-stakeholder initiative, S.H.E. has celebrated the local efforts to empower women from the state of Jharkhand. In its first phase, S.H.E. had six project partners and in the later stage, S.H.E. onboarded new partners who showed interest in working for the same purpose. All the diverse partners represent the state and support women’s empowerment.

S.H.E. has embraced the spirit of coming together to form a stronger, more resilient, sustainable and collaborative network by including the experts from Jharkhand who has a deep understanding of the target group and has hands-on experience with rural women entrepreneurs.

S.H.E., as a digital medium, aims to inspire young adults prone to socio-cultural barriers that prevent them from continuing in the education system.

In its second phase, S.H.E. will work towards creating a mindset nudge by motivating young girls—aged 14 to under the age of 25 from low-income, poor and ultra-poor backgrounds in the peri-urban areas of Bihar—and their caretakers through a series of inspirational stories of women who have accomplished their dreams and pay special emphasis to education as an enabler.
