International Day of Rural Women

The United Nations International Day of Rural Women celebrates and honors women and girls living in rural areas on 15 October each year. It recognizes the huge role that rural mothers, daughters, and grandmothers play in producing food, and building agricultural and rural development worldwide.

Women on Wings is on a mission to create livelihood opportunities for women in rural India. Together with its business partners, Women on Wings aims to create one million jobs for women in rural India. A job means an income, economic autonomy, and an escape from the cycle of poverty. Research shows that women spend their income on their families. Children can go to school, which increases their chances of a better future.
