Empower underprivileged girls with skills

Story

Why to implement this idea?
-Educating with the right skill set is essential for empowerment. The consequences of girls not finishing school in our country are extremely profound. Girls continue to be constrained by India's patriarchal society, as well as ongoing caste discrimination. Many have little or no access to education or basic health services. Thus, without education, girls are caught in a cycle of poverty and dependence on male family members.

Main aim of this idea:
The aim for educating underprivileged girls is to stimulate the confidence in young girls by providing to them everything that is in their capacity, to help them see the skills that they contain and are dormant within them. A proper nurturing, polishing and sharpening of those skills is only made possible through better education, awareness and a space to freely express oneself. Therefore, this fundraising campaign would directly help the millions of underprivileged girls of our country with educational, vocational and social skills and help them become confident and financially independent.

How to utilize the funds that would be raised?
- Funds raised through this campaign will be used to associate with NGO's like SEWA, Azad Foundation, Vimochana to name a few, who are proactively acting towards this cause. Also, after a phase of skilling, a part of the funds can then be used to help the women get engaged with startups who are working for this cause too. Women leaders and entrepreneurs can be called for interactive sessions to talk directly with the girls in some specific camps. CSR departments of large companies can be contacted to further our cause as well, to bring in traction in the media circuit and also get essential resources for carrying out the work.
