National Award 2008


In an effort to promote women's empowerment, the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) 29/04/2008 honoured SHAHANA KT, who at the grass root level faced all odds but made significant contribution in the field of EDUCATION.
Saluting her spirit and exemplary achievement, the CII gave away the Women Exemplar/Adarsh Stree award, 2008, to Shahana K.T. for her work in the field of education. "I studied up to class 12 but I always had an eagerness within me to do something more. I knew that information technology has the capability to create waves. Therefore, I decided to join a computer institute and learn computer skills," Shahana, her head covered with a red dupatta and a radiant smile across her face, told IANS after receiving the award.
"After that, I decided to spread my knowledge among others, especially the girls. In Kerala, where I come from, women are literate but most only up to class 10, and then they are married off. With my initiative, I wanted to empower them so that they could get jobs with their newly acquired skills," she said.
Shahana not only teaches computer skills to children and women, but has also initiated a Bhumi club which aims to circumvent the middlemen and offer the advantage of e-literacy to farmers.
The award, which constitutes a citation, a medal and a cash prize of Rs.100,000 was given away by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.
The CII started giving away the Women Exemplar/Adarsh Stree award since 2005 to encourage women from the grass root level to take up initiatives which contribute towards the nation's development.

താത്ത ഈ ബ്ലോഗിന്റെ ബാക്ക ഗ്രൌണ്ട് അല്പം ലൈറ്റ് ആക്കുകയും, അക്ഷരങ്ങളുടെ വലിപ്പം അല്പം കൂട്ടുകയും ചെയുകയാനെങ്ങില്‍ വായിക്കാന്‍ എളുപ്പം ആയിരുന്നു. കണ്ണ് വേദനിക്കുന്നു ഈ പ്രതലത്തില്‍ ...അത് കൊണ്ട മുഴുവന്‍ വായന ഇതൊകെ ശരിയാക്കിയിട്ട്.. ഓക്കേ
