    This fundraiser will benefit

    Van Gujjar women

    from Lower Shivalik Range Uttarakhand

I Intend to support YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN from the marginalised communities on Education, Health, Skills to move towards Empowerment 

There are millions of girls living in the remote geographies away from the access to education, good health and livelihood building opportunities. The lack of all these make these girls away empowerment and self growth. 

The modern world is moving at a pace that is unimaginable for these girls  to even understand. Years of marginalisation has led to poor access - education, health care, infrastructural facilities - leading to multiple problems for the community. Rising cases of early maternity, loss of a pregnancy, PCOS/D, Leukorrhea have led to the loss of life and challenges for adolescent girls and women. The lack of skills and livelihood opportunities for the girls  makes them dependent.

A young girl from Van Gujjar community Aamna who is a part of our working group has been awarded the Tata Samvaad Fellowship 2021. She has been given a Grant Amount for her project with enables her to work for the women and girls of the Community.
