Ever since our inception we have placed women empowerment at the heart of our company. We have a fundamental belief that women are the foundation on which society is built and we salute them.
This women’s day we urge you to take a step towards empowering the women in your life, here are seven simple ways to make a significant impact on the life of sisters, wives and mothers starting right in our own neighbourhoods.
1. Mentor a woman close to home
The increasing migration rate to the cities, poorly performing schools, and adolescent violence makes it difficult to be a woman growing up in India. Reach out and influence the life of a young girl in your own community by volunteering as a tutor or mentor.
2. Provide their ticket to education: clean water
Did you know that women in poor communities frequently miss school due to a lack of clean water in their own village? Rather than attending class, millions of women and females are forced spend a few hours every day to bring water for their families that’s frequently dirty and harmful to their health. Help provide clean water or make a small donation and also open the door to education for a young woman.
3. Support women in crisis
Millions of women are exposed to abuse, child labour, sex trafficking, child marriage, along with other offences. You can help where it is needed the most, protecting women and children by equipping qualified local staff to provide training, education, counselling, healthcare, along with other programs that reach females and girls as well as boys, helping to end cycles of gender-based violence.
4. Invest in a small business owner
You can connect with hardworking female entrepreneurs who are waiting to realize their dream of building or expanding a successful business. A small loan is all that they require.
5. Help a new Mother
The initial few weeks after birth are crucial for both the mother and the infant. You can help out by giving a brand-new mother the vital things such as a bassinet, fabric diapers, blankets, and a container to get clean water, and soap. Your presents help in crucial infant care training. Know a new mom near you who might be feeling overwhelmed? Help out!
6. Help a Homemaker achieve Financial Independence
Women empowering women is our mission. Perhaps you are/know a Home-maker looking for some extra income or is ready to finally get on the path to true financial freedom. Either way, we can help.

7. Tell the women in your life that you care.
Empowering women starts right in our families, workplaces, and neighbourhoods. Write a note of thanks to that teacher who encouraged you years ago, pick up coffee for that new mom in your office who’s struggling to balance it all, or tell your own sister, daughter, or mother how much you appreciate them.
To all the women out there. Cheers! Team Optymystix salutes your resilience and strength.
