International Women's Day (IWD) is around the corner, and this year, March 8th will mark its hundred and eleventh anniversary. With a theme of Gender Equality for a Sustainable Tomorrow, this year, the world will celebrate Women's Day to recognize the efforts and dedication of women in every nook and cranny who took charge for climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response to secure a sustainable future for all.
In today’s world, women play a crucial role in a variety of fields, from scientific development and literature to financing and fierce competition in the social and economic fabric of dependency and poverty. Effective women empowerment includes a much larger set of rules, including effective participation in different development programs, and encouraging them to be independent and self-confident, to meet the challenges of living in a patriarchal society with courage and self-respect. Individual reinforcement can only be achieved if the individual can make decisions alone.
Those working and striving with development initiatives understand the significance of investing in women's empowerment. It is no secret for the world that achieving Gender Equality for Sustainable Development includes appropriate actions and statistics unconditionally dedicated to gender parity.
My Pooja Box - Bringing Gender Equality with Women Empowerment
My Pooja Box believes that women are a valuable asset to any business as they are emotionally driven, hard-working, and invariably instinctive. With a business model where women are the prime target audience, we understand the significance of having a female team that can help comprehend and deal with conditions and situations in a better way.
Talking about Gender Equality, My Pooja Box has appointed a female at every crucial stage of the company hierarchy. Furthermore, co-founded by a woman, My Pooja Box is pouring-in every endeavor with a vision of empowering women to an extent where they can achieve whatever they want in life without making any compromise. My Pooja Box is a dream team comprising over 80% female employees working across all departments - accounts, design, development, merchandising, customer care, operations, photography, marketing, etc.

My Pooja Box - Empowering Women for Sustainable Development
Building a sustainable future means utilizing resources without compromising the needs of future generations. We at My Pooja Box understand that sustainable development is the primary principle of all policies and actions to develop a workplace based on freedom, equality, opportunity, and solidarity. Attaining a sustainable future is unfeasible to achieve without gender equality.
Consequently, at My Pooja Box, empowering women is the primary focus for sustainable growth, social development, and environmental sustainability. We constantly strive to make our operations and manufacturing more eco-friendly by following sustainable ways to celebrate the art of celebrating Indian festivals. For instance, the Plant-A-Ganesha initiative, launched in 2018 by My Pooja Box is one of the most successful and widely celebrated collections for Ganesh Chaturthi. Likewise, we also launched eco-friendly rakhis that became extremely popular among customers, various media outlets, and celebrities.
To create these handcrafted products, My Pooja Box is associated with various women-driven small business organizations and women artisans across India. These female artists use organic materials to craft their products. As a result, My Pooja Box can introduce environment-friendly god idols, home décor solutions, and much more to people across the globe. My Pooja Box not only generates employment opportunities for women in urban and rural settings but also manages to set off a previously unseen movement towards eco-friendly production and manufacturing for a sustainable future.
No doubt, women are known for excelling in multiple roles effortlessly per day, and thus, they are considered the backbone of every society. Living in male-dominating societies, women play a wide range of roles, such as caring mothers, loving daughters, and capable colleagues. The best part is that they fit the bill perfectly in every aspect.
My Pooja Box has a definite goal of empowering women in every sector of the society in every part of the world, and hence, we make every endeavor possible with a mission of building a society where women are treated equally at every stage of their life, because Behind Every Successful Woman is Herself!
