The women and children who join Sambhali Trust suffer many problems of poverty, gender inequality, domestic abuse, alcoholism (in their husbands), lack of education and opportunities.
In Setrawa, all our students come from poor areas around the village where they spend their time looking after their siblings, the domestic animals and doing household chores. Most of them are the first generation of learners in their families. We make sure these children are literate and once they go to school, we provide extra tuition so that they don't drop out of school. Additionally, our volunteers assist local teachers at Government schools by teaching basic English and Math. The standards at those schools are very bad, the rooms are dark & empty and there is not enough stationary, etc. for all children.
Our rural projects are in desperate need of funding to offer help to our young girls and boys who deserve support with their school work and education in general.
