The Himalayan area is renowned for the holy Himalayas, the Divine Mother Ganga River and is a place where sages have meditated for millenia. Currently, however, this region has a high level of alcoholic and drug addicted men who gamble and abuse women on many levels which results in socially dysfunctional and impoverished families. The physical and psycho emotional states of children and women of these families becomes adversely affected and in turn there is further impoverishment and dysfunctionality within the family and therefore society.
The education and well being of such children in these impoverished families is paramount as they are the foundation of future society.
The empowerment of women to free themselves of such abuse is also paramount as women are the backbone of society and are revered as goddesses in ancient Indian culture and perhaps for that matter in all ancient cultures.
Stree seeks to bring back the respect deserved by women as Goddesses and help allign them with their original feminine divinity. These ideas are not new but lie at the heart of the ancient traditions of India.
Stree also provides paid classes, courses and consultations in Ayurveda in India and across the globe to enhance the health and happiness of the whole.The profits from these services go toward the service providers who give time and skills towards product development, the sourcing and designing of products and training women in ethics, wellness and empowerment.
Stree is a holistic organisation caring for the health of Mother Nature.
