    Women continue to remain the real architects of a developed society even though many a times their services are unnoticed and under rewarded. Marine fisher folk are members of a low and disadvantaged caste belonging to the lowest economic strata in Indian society. The fisherwomen, in particular, have a very low status in the social hierarchy which leaves them worse off than their compatriots. The fisherwomen in Kerala assume significance due to their involvement in fish related activities leading to distribution, availability and value addition. The traditional fisherwomen play an pivotal role in the fisheries sector in terms of their involvement in fish related activities viz., fish vending, fish drying, prawn peeling, sorting, grading, fish packing, and net making. With the changing scenario and the increasing social welfare schemes from the government to revive this sector, the youth of this community has started participating in the socio economic activities of the society and therefore there is a need to reshape their own perception of how they view themselves. The main objective of this training is to screen out those barriers that stand in the way for their overall development. The training sessions will provide insight to gain new skills that will improve their functional efficiency and will help them to step up as women youth and take the lead to revive their community. I am sure that the training programme will help them to increase their capabilities and bring out the best in them.
