WIT In The

21st Century

The nature of activities at WIT has evolved with the changing needs of society, but as an organization, WIT has remained women-centric and continues to help less fortunate women secure a better future. WIT remains dedicated to the original vision of its founder, Kamila Tyabji: to help women to help themselves; to encourage women from less privileged backgrounds to acquire new skills; to give them the self-confidence and self esteem required to earn by their own industry and initiative; to enable them to carry this newly discovered skill and confidence into the wider world as well as within the framework of WIT.
