- About FLO
Our Mission is the economic empowerment of women, and with the active participation from thousands of members across the country, we have been continuously working towards this objective.
The vision for the year 2016-17 is “Changing Lives – NEW CHALLENGES & UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITIES”. FLO has aligned itself to the development agenda of the Nation by focussing on creating National Initiatives which echo the National Missions like Make in India, Start Up India, Nari Shakti, Beti Padhao-Beti Bachao, Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan etc. The idea is to contribute towards building a strong, prosperous and equitable nation and creating a strong and powerful network of women leaders.
Chapters across the country have conducted programmes which help advance the National Missions mentioned below:
