It's only the women who can uplift other women and create solutions for each other in this man's world. Our social charcha is about the same. We gather a panel which addresses women issues and create solutions to pave a smooth way by removing hindrances in their development. Our Social Charcha programs are acclaimed and lauded by Mathura women and turn out to be very insightful.

A session on developing interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships. How to love yourself! How to keep yourself happy! How to handle stress & anxiety in our day-to-day life? Riya inspired our boss ladies to change and keep themselves first. Women brought forward the questions that always remain just in our minds, the challenges they face in various roles they play but have nobody to go back to discuss and share with at the end of the day.

This charcha was held with the underprivileged women. We opened the house to all the ladies working as househelps in a society. Even though some of them still use cloth, to our surprise, each one of them were well aware about sanitary pads. We highlighted and stressed on the importance of maintaining hygiene and using sanitary pads during menstruation. ANWA organised a multi-society drive of sanitary pad distribution along with setting up an option for buying sanitary pads at subsidized rates for these ladies.

One of the best community coming together experience we have ever had. Women left all their apprehensions at home and came ready to discuss everything mental health. With doctors on board, many woman came out to share their experiences of mental health issues, doctors normalised their concerns and gave medical reasoning behind each of their concerns, the level of comfort in that room that day was beyond imagination for women in a small city like Mathura.

ANWA kickstarted it's first open house discussion - Mathura Social Charcha with “Period Myths and Menstrual Hygiene”. We believe that positive and healthy discussions are the stepping stones to big changes in our society. ANWA brought doctors on board, to impart their expert knowledge and burst the period myths with facts. The women discussed the stereotypes they deal with during every menstrual cycle, and inspired each other to break away the period stigma. 3 of them pledged to continue their daily ritual of pooja even during menstruation.
