WERP-India is a students' initiatives for women empowerment in India. About 50% of the world population is women. Their contributions to wealth and asset creation are substantial and can be inferred as same as that of men, though there is no precise estimate of such macro variables on the basis of gender. Despite this, in almost all societies, there is gender bias against women. The gender bias against women starts from the conception in the womb till lifetime. The war against women is largely influenced by policies and issues of justice as well as the social construct that influence the mindset of the public against women. However, WERP-India has taken up a sustainable development project on the multi-dimensional project approach to women empowerment in India through social research techniques and volunteering. The social research project is expected to facilitate the reconstruction of Indian society towards a favorable mindset and appreciation for women and girls.
