Appropriating the need for Gender Equality, warrants the need for a place that not only empowers women but also grounds them as a major cog in the growth of the society at large.

The project approaches the women’s house as a quintessential built for the people of Baghere and around, socially and economically, and the individual growth of a woman at its core. This opportunity is addressed by creating an agricultural facility that is run by women, where intensive research and training programs can be carried out to tackle the unfavorable agricultural conditions, eventually rooting its people and economy back.
The commons i.e. places created for conversations amidst the women, with the other and for all promises to form the heart of not only the campus but Baghere at large. Conversations of growth, progress, celebrations, and leisure!
