Kalyani will look after the technical aspects of family welfare activities; its Analysis Department will help in perspective planning and monitoring and evaluation of the performance of various family welfare programmes.

It also will help to look after health infrastructure at the peripheral level. It will take the responsibility to provided communication, education, publicity and extension support to the programme trhrough mass education and with emphasis on inter-personal communication. It will also look after population-education activities.

  1. Comprehensive Law against Domestic Violence: There should be a comprehensive law against violence with a broader definition of domestic violence. The definition should encompass all acts within the home of physical, psychological, emotional, sexual and financial abuse which in effect hurt, degrade or take away the ability of the women to control contact with another individual. The legislation should address women of all ages irrespective of their marital status. Kalyani will work for this dream to come true.

 

  1. Improve women’s Economic Capacities: We will try to improve women’s access to and control of income and assets, recognise her shared rights to the family home, and incorporate the principle of division of community property in divorce laws.

Productive assets and property are critical to strengthening the economic and social status of women, providing income opportunities and improved respect for women outside marriage and family.

  1. Strengthen and expand training and sensitization programme: Programmes designed to train, sensitize and interlink those working at critical entry points to identify and treat abused children and women should be a priority, with one aim being increased accountability across institutions. Such programmes should be tailored for medical personnel, legal and enforcement personnel, the judiciary, counseling and other support service providers.

 

  1. Effective use of the media to build Public Awareness: Mobilisation of communities around campaigns such as that for “Zero tolerance of violence” requires NGOs and advocates to work effectively with all forms of media. This requires improved skills and capacity among NGOs to enter new forms of dialogue with journalists and media personnel to heighten awareness of human rights and their significance for addressing suppression and anomalies. Kalyani has this objective on the top of its priorities.
