There are so many…Continue

A woman is invariably, a sister, daughter, mother, grandmother to man, at some point of time in life. If none else, every man has had bonds with his mother at least, and so has stakes in a woman’s cause. Women’s Synergy (WS) thus encourages men to reflect on their relationship with women and fathom the best in them that could go a long way in supporting and holding women as prized possessions.…Continue

Similarly, access to education, health facilities and transport facilities are poor. Women are working hard for cutting the fire wood and carry it on head…Continue

His style of conducting the workshop took me back in time…Continue
