Women’s empowerment thorough education

As the oldest MNC in Hyderabad, Hexagon Capability Centre India (HCCI) is committed to driving positive change by addressing societal challenges. We have been empowering adolescent girls and young women as we believe they are the catalyst for long-term sustainable change. Thanks to partnerships with various non-profit organisations, the Women’s Empowerment program is tackling serious issues like child marriage and labour, as well as the means to learn a beneficial skill and obtain education.

For five years, we have been associated with Tharuni- an NGO for underprivileged adolescent girls. Our program started with a focus on 40 girls and now has extended to 150 across five villages in Telangana.
