Funds above the 20,000 INR for the scholarship will be used to organize workshops where we will have Sikh female luminaries present lectures on topics geared toward women and girl empowerment in the Sikh faith. These workshops would include multiple lectures and events over the period of a day and also lunch. These workshops will give girls and women a chance to interact, make new friends, learn about important gender specific issues within Sikhism and place importance on stepping up for leadership roles in the faith (something which is lacking now). The costs involved with each workshop vary and how often we could do such workshops depends on the amount we can raise. Costs involved would be in inviting female Sikh leaders to the area, rental of classroom space for the workshops and food for lunch. We would also look to acquire some small prizes for answering quizzes etc to encourage active participation. We are looking for 30,000 initially for this but estimate the costs will be higher than that, with core executive stepping up to fund the difference.
