Women from the Dhalit communities in India are often subject to multiple discriminiation because of their caste, their gender and their income situation.
An NGO based in Jodhpur, Rajasthan aims to promote the self-esteem, financial independence and educational, professional and social skills of disadvantaged women and girls.
On site, women and girls are offered various learning and educational opportunities, e.g. lessons in Hindi (basic reading & writing), English, math, as well as in craft and professional skills (e.g. sewing, textile printing, embroidery, beading, etc.). Graduates of the empowerment program can find work in one of two sewing centers operated by the NGO. The products manufactured there are sold in a boutique in Jodhpur and to customers abroad. The NGO offers women in India sustainable educational and professional opportunities and the prospect of a self-determined and independent life.
The NGO also runs school prevention and education programs on child sexual abuse, puberty and development.
