Amity Humanity Foundation organized a one day training program
“Legal Literacy” for Department of Women and Child Development,
Haryana at Punjab University

Amity Humanity Foundation, A social engine, conducted a one day legal literacy program on 27 October 2006 at Punjab University, Chandigarh under the aegis of department of Women and Child Development, Haryana. The underlying aim of the training program was to disseminate legal literacy to the officials and implementers of Swayamsiddha Scheme, thereby empowering the victims to fight for their rights.

Inaugurating the training program, the Chief Guest Smt. Anuradha Gupta (IAS) - Commissioner, Social Welfare Department, Haryana said that in India the plight of women is becoming deplorable day by day. Poor women are even more marginalized and victimized because they are unaware of their rights leaving aside the ways to fight for their rights. “We need to reach all those women to develop our country in real sense and training programs like this will definitely ameliorate the condition of women in the long run,” said Smt. Anuradha Gupta. She also emphasized the recent measures taken by the government such as promulgation of Act on Domestic Violance and Village Level Committees of the Department to empower women

Speaking on the occasion, the Guest of Honor Prof. R.C. Sobti- Vice Chancellor, Punjab University said that men and women are two pillars of society; even if one pillar is weak the growth of an economy is bound to suffer. Indian society is being crippled by so many ailments like dowry, rape, prenatal sex determination, and wrongful confinement of women that the progress of our country is difficult. The clarion call is to empower the women and equip them to come at par with male community.

Welcoming the august gathering, Maj.Gen. (Dr.) Surendar Kumar- Vice President Amity Humanity Foundation in his address stated that there is a clear nexus between a country’s growth and the plight of its women. The persistence of hunger and abject poverty in India and other parts of the world is due to the subjugation, marginalization and disempowerment of women. Women suffer from malnutrition, poor health, and lack of education. A range of Government programs have been launched to increase economic opportunity for women although there appear to be no existing programs to address the cultural and traditional discrimination against women. This training program is a small step in addressing the bias women are subjected to daily in their domestic chores.

On the occasion several eminent speakers including Ms. Sabeena Saleem – Law Faculty, Punjab University, Ms. Rachna Bahadur- practicing lawyer shared their valuable thoughts with the audience.

Prof. VeerSingh, Dean University Instructions, Punjab University in hisvaledictory address spoke about the steps that Laws can take and punishments that it can mete out, but changing the heart of people is a slower and difficult process. He also gave away the certificates to the participants.

Under guidance of Mr. Rahul Banerjee, Faculty AHF students from Amity Law School and Institute of Legal Studies Punjab University presented short skits based on different Acts discussed during the training program. The program was attended by many distinguished and senior officials including Ms. Pushpa Ahuja- Deputy Director, Department of Women and Child Department, Ms. Mallika Saini- Program officer, Department of Women and Child Department, Mr. Shekhar Dhawan- Member Secretary, Legal Aid Services Authority.

Dr. Chanda R. Akhouri- Officiating Director - Amity Humanity Foundation thanked the dignitaries and resource persons, participants, media and all the others involved in making the program a success.
