Being a Girl
Investment in women and girls is a proven path to reduce poverty. They are disadvantaged when it comes to employment, education, and work skills. They are also abused sexually, physically, mentally and psychologically
Being a Girl is a multi-faceted program that will directly improve the lives of thousands of girls in India. We believe that changing the lives of girls can change the world. Our community-driven projects will address to women and girls of the most critical areas like education, healthcare, skill development training, leadership, microfinance.
Girls in countries like India face overwhelming odds from the moment they are born. Being a girl, she’s more likely to suffer from malnutrition, be forced into an early marriage, be subjected to violence, be sold into the sex trade, or become infected with HIV. Being a girl, she faces discrimination in her own home. Being a girl, she’ll have limited access to a doctor or even a primary education although she’s able to go to school at all. But we’re here to change all that.
Through our several development projects, we reach out to the most marginalized and vulnerable populations of girls in India, rigorously measuring our impact every step of the way. However, it’s not just a girl thing. We actively and strategically engage men and boys to take an active role in all of our initiatives because real change can’t happen without the support of the entire community.
Experience and research consistently show that improving the lives of girls also lifts the condition of their families and their communities. Quite simply, investing in girls is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Girls can change the world. But they can’t do it without support.
This project will empower disadvantaged 500 women and girls through imparting skill training, computer training, educational scholarships and Self-help, which will help to generate an income for their families and give a better chance of survival.
