The Women’s cell @ ST. Xavier’s Aluva was started with the aim of empowering and orienting women to recognize their true potential and to help them attain their own stand in a competing world. Its goal is the overall development of Xaverians in all spheres of their life. It also helps in creating awareness about important issues related to women and provides a forum for discussion and deliberation on a range of issues from empowerment to environment. Womens Cell seeks to mould the young women force in the campus to achieve thriving mile stones of success in their life. It also seeks to empower young women to attain emotional, physical and mental freedom to withstand the changing phases throughout their life. Women Cell functions with the added aim to enhance self-esteem of young women and empower them in taking pertinent decisions. Other important objectives include giving career guidance, functioning of a counselling centre, conducting health awareness classes, arranging classes about community living and giving them a hands-on training on farming and social work.
