Each session is issue specific and seeks to establish an implementable plan. Tanishka will support them through a network of supervisors, coordinators and reporters, who advise, assess and track all groups and projects to ensure high impact, quickly implementable change to positively transform the lives of women in communities,states and the entire nation.
