Educating and Empowering Women
Many young orphaned girls in rural Indian villages face the struggle with one crucial element of their education: uniforms.
In India, it is required for students to attend school in the proper school uniform, a rule implemented to allow fair treatment for everyone. However, many of these children have little to no school clothing suitable for their needs.
In addition, oftentimes girls are not encouraged to seek education, as they are considered to be more useful for housework; 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 especially are 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.
