For the girls.

October 11th, is International Girls Day, initiated by the United Nations. One of its main goals is the support for girls and young women through education. What are we doing to educate girls?

-in our evening class programs, thousands of girls and young women can catch up on their missed primary school education
-in our vocational centers they can learn tailoring, weaving, but also motorbike repair and marketing
-in the bridging classes, girls from disadvantaged groups can be introduced into the schools.
-in the orphanages of Snehalaya we take care of girls whom we retrieved from the streets out of prostitution or forced labor – to enable them to live a self-determined life in dignity.

Approximately 70% of the children and adolescents in our projects are female.
