Every woman in the world have faced some sort of harassment in some point of their life. It gets worse when someone is a victim of severe tortures due to verbal abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, psychological trauma, etc. There is no doubt that even now we belong to a patriarchal society, specially when a girl is born in a family in a rural area, it is obvious that she is brought up with a lot more difficulties, challenges and restrictions. In the light of these tragic incidents that these women or girls have to face everyday and can not do anything about it due to lack of knowledge and education, makes them fall under the category of ‘Underprivileged’. An attempt was taken to design a training center and accommodation facility dedicating to them as my final undergrad project. This center focuses on how the architectural elements and design interventions can be made to make a breathable and safe environment for these women. The center acts as an opportunity centre where they develop skills, heal their trauma and become confident. Furthermore, the design emphasizes on how the interactive spaces can be designed merging the whole thing with landscapes promoting positivity, safe and home like environment.
