Reporting from SAKAR: Opening Day of Program

23. October, 2012
Traning of 30 young minority girls started!

Giving a new chance to minority girls in Uttar Pradesh

There are few things more important than giving girls from a minority group the chance to start a life of independence. Our partner organisation SAKAR works with adolescent girls within a muslim minority in Uttar Pradesh, India. They provide education and practical training that gives each and every one of these girls a real opportunity to break a heavy, negative social cycle. More about the background of this project here. 

Opening Day!

Over the last coupe of months, our partner organisation SAKAR has made home visits to identify families living below the poverty line and interview potential young girls for the program. At this point, 30 girls have been enrolled in the 6 months training and education program, which has been financed by Help Every Day. The program started on the exactly one week ago and the top picture to the left (click to enlarge) is taken from the opening ceremony on the 15th of October 2012. The following two pictures are taken from the first training sessions from the tailoring and beautician programs respectively.

We are thrilled to be able to finance this program through our daily Coins of Compassion and look so much forward to seeing how this work unfolds over the next six months. Stay tuned!
