What We Do

Women’s Day is celebrated globally on 8th March every year in honour of their remarkable contribution to our society. The day also commemorates the inspiring role of women around the world to secure women’s rights and build more equitable societies. Women’s day also remembers the voices of many women that go unheard and who continue to be dominated from securing their rights and realizing their full potential. This year on the International Women’s Day, Centre of Excellence for Tribal Affairs, IIPA felicitated those women who have paved the path towards our progress and struggled to take ‘womanhood’ to a level where it is now.
