Explain your project in details:

Womenite is a social initiative, a student based organization that works for the upliftment of society and promotion of feminism. The youth based organization, founded and headed by Mr. Harshit Gupta, is all for the promotion of equal rights and spread of awareness and education among all the sections of the society. Womenite has, time and again, taken steps to promote education about issues like Sexual Harassment, Menstruation, Patriarchal Norms etc. The team which comprises of over 35 students, all belonging from different regions and cultures but studying in New Delhi, reaches out to children and women from backward and remote areas in order to educate them and sensitize them about the issues prevailing in the society. The team has always believed that only education can truly change the future and in order to ensure a better tomorrow, the minds of young children have to be trained so that they know what is right and what is wrong. Womenite works to break the shackles of patriarchy and change the system once and for all. The team teaches in backward communities and holds workshops and seminars in schools and colleges on issues such as Child Sexual Harassment, Taboos related to Menstruation, Female Harassment and Feminism. This makes sure that people get to know the difference between myths and reality, what needs to be done and what is to be avoided. A lot of things that children grasp at a tender age goes with them as they grow up and if they are taught about equality and respect, they will grow up to make a better world for everybody to live in. Womenite makes sure that this happens, works today for a better tomorrow.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Womenite as an initiative advocating for SDG 4 laid by UN to provide quality education that Womenite does to the children and sometimes, women of backward and remote communities. Womenites mission is to create awareness about feminism and its real meaning being quality for all regardless of the sexes, as a part of SDG 5. The campaigns are designed to bring about a change in the future generation by the means of moulding young mind so that they grow up to have right mentalities. This substantially reduces the chances of them being the victims of crimes or the perpetrators of the same. Womenite believes in evaluating its success through the kind of change they have created and the amount of trust that they have won. During the workshops and talk sessions, many young girls decided to confide in the team members and the team ensured that they got justice and a friendly someone to talk to. People called and thanked the team for doing what it does and that kind of love creates the parameters for Womenite. That is how they keep track of what they do and what kind of response it garners. Talking about achievements, so far they have conducted around 50 workshops targeting more than 10,000 students and adults. They have collected more than 10,000 commitments for HeForShe campaign, UN Women solidarity movement for gender equality. The founder was invited at UN Women to present their work and was chosen as the runners-up for Queens Young Leaders award by HH Queen Elizabeth II. Out of 250+ events conducted in 50+ countries on World Merit Day to promote SDGs, they were the co-winners in the whole world. The fact that the organization has achieved so much in such less time makes it stand out from the rest.

Sustainability and future plans

Womenite does fund raising campaigns in order to generate funds for their projects. Mostly all the projects are self-sustainable and do not need much of an investment. Teaching, educating and spreading awareness is a skill and that cannot be measured in pennies. The team has a dedicated lot of students who like to go and teach people in backward and remote areas. The benefit they get is that they believe they are creating a better future. Quality of education matters the most and that is what the team has always aimed at. For other events however, funds are generated through processes that also contribute to the society as a whole. Selling of handicrafts made by women belonging to backward and remote areas was done which benefited both the not-so-financially-independent women and the Womenite team. Other campaigns such as the Raddi Campaign to collect Raddi from households and sell them to dealers thereby promoting Modis mission of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, were also done in order to raise funds. The team aims to start paid campaigns in schools in the future. This ensures both fund raising and awareness. Harshit would like to launch a community development programme, that is, to work with marginalised and backward communities in order to uplift them and provide them with employment opportunities. They plan to structure all their campaign under the theme of SHE: Sexuality, Health and Education.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

Womenite was founded by Mr. Harshit Gupta. He is an Engineer by Education and Social Entrepreneur by Choice. He is an undergraduate engineering student doing his BTech in IT from Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT), Delhi. He has big dreams to change the world and a firm hand at entrepreneurship skills. He believes that plans were formulated to incorporate technology for some constructive use. He wanted domestic engineers to use technology in order to make life better for everyone. His mother has always been an inspiration for him. For around 21 years he had seen her doing the same monotonous work every day. He always used to wonder how he could do something concrete for all the women who sacrifice their whole lives as daughters, sisters, wives, mothers and friends. He wanted to challenge and change the system of patriarchy for good. This gave birth to Womenite with the aim - Women Empowerment. But after working for a few months and researching about what could be done in a better way, he realized that Women Empowerment is an umbrella under which there are various issues that need to be addressed. This initiative was founded with a purpose of moulding young minds and changing prevailing ideas about the position of women in the society. Something needed to be done to ensure that old and dogmatic ideas do not creep their way into the future generations. Womenite is essentially a foundation stone to a better tomorrow. He has been chosen as the Global Youth Ambassador for A World At School campaign which aims to promote quality education. He was also selected as the runners-up for Queens Young Leader Award by HH Queen Elizabeth II and was invited at UN Womens headquarters at New York to present their work.

Dear Resiliant Entrepreneur,

It's the end of the competition, I want to urge you to not leave this community without the contact (email especially) of as many other entrepreneurs on this platform. You never can tell what your further conversations may produce.

It's the power of networking and leverage I'm talking about...
Here's my email [email protected] looking forward to hearing from you.

Bye fellow entrepreneur:
As I say good buy, I must say it has been an astounding time reading so many great entries.
I went through the details of your idea and was indeed very impressed. Would you be kind enough to please explain to me as how you got this idea? Equally importantly, who were (are) the people who inspired you for you to come up with this idea.
Take care and all the very best!

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well-known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "premortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copy the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.

May 25, 2017 21:25

Hi Harshit,

I think it's great that you are working on women's rights, and I like the name Womenite!

I would like to learn more about your workshops. How many workshops does each participant go through? Is it just one, or a few? What methods do you use during the workshops to engage the participants and communicate the information you are trying to convey?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers
Yoke

May 24, 2017 04:08

Hi Harshit,

This is a great initiative as sensitization to create awareness and promote women's rights is a much-needed intervention. I understand that you conduct workshops and seminars in schools and colleges. I have few questions to understand that better:

1. Do you develop the training curriculum in-house? Also, as you reach out to different communities, do you also translate the curriculum in different languages to help facilitate the workshops better?

2. What are the metrics/ indicators you use to measure the success of these workshops?

Thank you very much.

May 23, 2017 23:28

Nice work. I run a blog on gender inequality and whenever I hear of sex crimes committed across India, I get incensed. A topic I covered about a year ago was about a lady whose brother committed rape but the lady was sentenced for it because her brother escaped. I was heartbroken. I used to blog regularly about gender inequality but every time I research new content, I'm down by all the horrible news I read. It's been hard to keep blogging in that regard. Seeing how you have a large team, though, with many women included, I guess you get the fuel to carry on by having each other. It's a lot tougher alone, online.
Keep up the great work.
