UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
Aligned with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,UN Women is currently implementing a programme called Second Chance Education and Vocational Learning (SCE), which is aimed at empowerment of the most marginalized women who, owing to poverty and gender-based discrimination, have been denied access to opportunities at an early age.
The programme undertakes a holistic approach to empowerment using the pathways of learning, employment and entrepreneurship. The SCE programme enables and offers women opportunities to (1) re-enter into formal education, (2) undertake vocational education (3) receive entrepreneurship training and skills (4) potential employment. SCE offers a comprehensive solution by adopting a holistic approach, leveraging partnerships at all levels, using innovative pedagogies and finance to achieve its objective.
During the course of implementation of the SCE programme, experiences of women and girls has highlighted that finding job opportunities were restricted due to the lack of degrees and/or diplomas from higher education/training institutes, lack of employable skills (domain and transferable skills) and lack of entrepreneurship opportunities.
To respond to this challenge UN Women is implementing the Link Women project to create a cadre of skilled women, who have completed their higher education and are ready to gainfully participate in the digital economy. This project will be implemented for a duration of fifteen months – July 2022 to October 2023 in the Greater Metropolitan Region and Pune region in Maharashtra. By the end of the project duration, approximately 2000 women and girls will have completed their higher/technical/vocational education to attain a degree/diploma along with attaining employable skills for gainful employment, and increased connectivity on e-platforms such as LinkedIn. Further, about 3000 girls and their parents will be sensitized on gender equality and women empowerment.

S/he facilitates the delivery of the project by monitoring results achieved during implementation and ensuring appropriate application of systems and procedures and develops enhancements if necessary.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
