To celebrate International Women’s, at Christy we’re encouraging you to tell us what #EachForEqual means to you. In this post we show you how we’re supporting women around the world, not just on 8th March, but every day of the year.
What are Christy and Welspun doing to support IWD?
This year’s IWD theme is #EachForEqual, because an equal world is an empowered world. Christy and our parent company Welspun, understand this and fully support equal rights for all. Welspun is firmly committed to the empowerment of women, creating opportunity, providing training and fostering an environment that enables them to earn a livelihood and be self-reliant.
One such initiative is supporting women in sports, especially those from challenging backgrounds. Welspun offers crucial support to young women fighting to break through into the highest levels of their sport. The vision is to not just motivate women to take up sports, but also help them pursue their sport as a full time career.
Currently supporting 14 extraordinary women in a variety of sports including swimming, athletics, boxing, cycling, para-badminton and more, Welspun hope to expand that number to 25 by the end of 2020.
Another initiative supporting women’s rights is empowering women in promoting menstrual health throughout India. Welspun has enabled 38 entrepreneurs to reach out to nearly 8,000 women across a variety of towns and villages in India to be better supported every month. By the end of 2020, Welspun plan to create 100 entrepreneurs and reach nearly half a million women throughout the country.
