In India (Gujarat State), Dhuliben Khant and Revaben Bariya, 2005 SEWA Laureates, received their Prize on 15 October. More than 3000 women, including rural and urban SEWA members, local Leaders, spearhead team members, organizers and SEWA’s (Self Employment Women Association) sister groups attended the event. The importance of the Prize was pointed out: “...women who are awarded, receive increased recognition in their villages. Communities start to respect women and appreciate the work they do for the village. This leads to an increased level of confidence among the women. This also helps them to do their work more efficiently and with confidence...”. As of date, eight rural SEWA women SEWA won the Prize since inception of the award.
