MAA WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND PROTECTION PROGRAM ENCOURAGE EMPOWER EVOLVE
“A feminist plan for gender equality, sustainability and social justice.” The vast majority of the world’s poor are women. Two-thirds of the world’s illiterate population is female. Of the millions of school-age children not in school, the majority are girls. Women in the targeted area are hard-working and can make great contributions toward their quality of life. But the problem persists because they are not the earning party at home, so they are always neglected for their rights and never given the place they deserve. Women's empowerment is a complex, multi-dimensional, fluid, and emerging concept within feminism and development literature. It has economic, political, social, cultural, religious, personal, psychological, and emotional elements. Women are capable of empowering themselves when their access to opportunities to become economically independent. Countless academics and researchers have long-established the lost economic potential carried by the global economy due to the lack of equitable and inclusive participation of women. If women engaged in economic activity on the same level as men, the world would add $11 trillion in annual 2025 GDP. Studies also show that women’s participation has positive spillover effects on health and other social indicators critical for the development of a country’s population. Despite these clear economic and social benefits, several challenges impede gender-inclusive economic growth and development. Girls face cultural and systemic barriers to accessing even basic education systems (primary/elementary and secondary/high schools), which are foundational to any medium- to long-term workforce development training. Women's empowerment is defined in a wide variety of ways some of which include access to material resources such as land, money, credit and income, availability of decent employment opportunities that involve good working conditions, access to power through representation in political and decision-making bodies, the freedom to make choices in life, enjoyment of basic rights granted in the constitution and international agreements, equal access to quality education and health facilities, mobility to be able to access various facilities, and control over one's body, sexuality and reproductive choices.
Studies show that when women are supported and empowered, all of society benefits. Their families are healthier, more children go to school and incomes increase. In short, communities become more resilient. Empowerment is believed to be the road to women's own equality, rights and fulfillment, while the instrumental view regards women's empowerment as the means to a better family, economy, society, and nation.

In the 5-9 age group, 5 million children are not enrolled in schools and after primary-school age, the number of OOSC doubles, with 11.4 million adolescents between the ages of 10-14 not receiving formal education.
