Rocheston Foundation

Rocheston Foundation

Empowerment begins here.

Throughout history, women have been denied equal opportunities in every sphere of life, restricted by imposing social roles based on their gender. They have had to encounter hardships and impediments at every juncture of their lives. They have had to undertake an unrelenting fight for social, political, legal, economic and gender equality.

Women and men may play different roles, but they have equal rights.

Who are We?

Rocheston foundation was established with the resolve to support women from all walks of life in their struggle to emancipate themselves. It is our priority to help them challenge all boundaries and constraints foisted on them by society.

By investing in women of all ages, we aim to contribute towards building a community of bold, liberated, and socially perceptive women who will help run the world alongside their male contemporaries, ridding our society of gender inequalities in any form.

The foundation is a part of the Rocheston Group of Companies, a New York based organization that provides training, certification, and accreditation on business standards and helps clients improve their business practices.

What is our Mission? - Addressing Child Labour in the Country

“Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time.”
- Grace Abbott

Among the millions of child laborers in the country, the working girl child is not just deprived of an education, but often relegated to domestic labor, suffering acute gender discrimination.

The foundation aims to bring hope to the lives of these girls and teach them to enjoy their childhood, allowing them to dream again. By closely working with law agencies across the country, the foundation envisions putting an end to child labor in India.

Rocheston foundation also aims to invest in the education of these children, ensuring a better future for them.

Educating the Girl Child

“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.”
- Hillary Clinton

Depriving women of an education is akin to depriving them of the opportunity to grow as individuals. We firmly believe in educating women, imparting vocational skills to them and nurturing their unique talents, enabling them to realize their potential and become self-sufficient.

Women and Health

“Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.”
- Winston S. Churchill

In many parts of rural and urban India, women struggle to access basic health care amenities, be it antenatal care for expectant mothers or general health checkups for older women. Consequently, these women are feeble and undernourished.

At Rocheston Foundation, we strongly empathize with these women and aim to improve the state of their health by administering medicines and distributing food supplies to them. The foundation is resolute in its commitment to dedicate time and resources that will ensure these women live better lives.

Addressing Domestic Abuse

"The abuse of women and girls is the most pervasive and unaddressed human rights violation on earth."
- Jimmy Carter

Women’s safety is still an unresolved issue in India. A woman may be unsafe on the streets, but often she is vulnerable even within the four walls of her own home. Women are afraid to speak up against domestic abuse, harassment, rape and marital rape because of societal pressures and inhibitions..

“We insult her everyday on TV
And wonder why she has no guts or confidence
When she's young we kill her will to be free
While telling her not to be so smart we put her down for being so dumb”

― John Lennon
