A girl without Skills / Talent is like a bird without wings.
Support “SWABHIMAN” and give wings to her dreams.

Girls from poor families dropout after 10th class in India. Poverty and lac of higher education or skill development, forces them to stay in villages forcing early marriage and becoming mothers in twenties. Without any specific skills, these girls are left with work of maids - sweeping floors or washing utensils.

In Punjab, District Firozpur, a Zira based NGO,  namely 'Village Life Foundation' is trying to create awareness &  Develop  Skills,  of weaker section girls to enable them to earn respectful livelihood.

Since last 3 years, Several girls have been trained and provided with the basic resources of skill development as per PMKVY objective, resulting in women empowerment to make them earning livelihood and supporting their families.

In continuation to that, Now NGO  is trying to start a free 'Ladies Tailoring & Stitching Course' in Zira for underprivileged girls as per guidelines of NSDC Delhi.

It will also provide free personality development and basics of computer education along with manners & etiquette classes on the weekends, which help them regain their confidence and compete with modern world.

Prior to  Covid-19 and Lockdown period, 4 batches of 70 underprivileged girls have been already trained with free Tuition and Training.

The main aim of this initiative is to make these girls self sufficient, and end practices like child marriage and child labour.

This programme aims at transforming the perception of the people from the underprivileged households / slum  areas about girl education and their rights.

Education is the only medium, by which we can provide equality to the girls of our country and make them rely on their own sword.

Together,  WE , the affluent class can empower them and make this society a better place to live in.
