Many young orphaned girls in rural Indian villages struggle with one critical element of their education: uniforms.
In India, students are required to wear uniforms, a rule implemented to allow fair treatment for everyone. However, many of these children have little to no school clothing suitable for their needs and lack the financial resources to fulfill them.
Often, girls are not encouraged to seek an education, as they are considered financial burdens and better equipped for domestic work; living with their relatives, they are expected to contribute and help out. They are also required to work in the fields in order to afford a uniform. Orphaned girls are especially at a disadvantage.
We aim to support these particularly vulnerable children. Our goal is to provide these young orphaned girls with an essential tool for their education.
