Venue : Sarvodaya Enclave, New Delhi
Parvaah cares for one and all. We have built 7 dhobi sheds at Sarvodaya Enclave, New Delhi to empower the laundrywomen who earn bread and butter for their families by running these shops. These washerwomen were in the area for the last 10 years. The roofs of the previous sheds used by them were made of plastic sheets, twigs and leaves. As a result they leaked incessantly during the rainy season and the women found it difficult to run these shops. Now we have provided them new and clean sheds made of iron sheets and rods, thereby helping them multiply their productivity and this has further led to an increase in their daily income.

Parvaah distributes Pluto devices and Empowers 50 Women at Thanagazi Village
At Parvaah, we consider that women are an indispensable part of our society and they need to be empowered. Over the years, we have been continuously doing whatever we can towards the upliftment of underprivileged women living in the villages, towns, and cities of India.
On 29th March, at an event organized at Thanagazi village in Rajasthan in which 600 women participated, 50 of them were handed over Pluto boxes by Parvaah. Pluto, a simple device invented by Ishan Malhotra, co-founder of Parvaah and a student of Jayshree Periwal International School, enables farmers to switch on and switch off the water pumps installed in their fields from anywhere anytime. Sariska tiger reserve is close to Thanagazi and many villagers have been killed by tigers in the area. To save the women farmers in the village from Tiger attacks, Parvaah had distributed Pluto devices among them so that they no longer need to venture out to their fields to turn on and turn off their pumps and this would considerably reduce the risk of tigers attacking the women and their husbands who are also farmers.
The Pluto distribution event was a grand success with hundreds of women assembling under one roof to know more about the device. Rumi, a village woman and a recipient of the Padma Shri award, participated in the event and when team Parvaah spoke to her, she expressed her concern for the women of Thanagazi and her joy at witnessing them being handed over Pluto devices by Parvaah.
We are delighted to do our bit for the women farmers at Thanagazi. And now Parvaah has joined hands with Vasudha Jan Vikas Sansthan, an NGO that has been devotedly and consistently working in the fields of Women welfare, Women healthcare and Women skill development in the village, to empower more and more women and other needy people in the area.
