The women’s cell of SBMJC, K.G.F. was established in the year 2013. The main aim of the cell is to look into the grievances of women. Women often feel neglected by society and thus the challenge lies in making them feel secure. Our institution therefore always has a holistic approach in addressing and handling these issues. We believe that ‘Prevention is better than Cure’ not only applies to an individual’s physical health, but also to the mental health and of a society at large.
