Buds of Christ aims at educating and protecting rural orphan girls until 18 years where girl children are neglected and exploited physically and sexually. This helps the orphan girls to make clear decisions and set goals for their future.
Orphan Girl Children are most vulnerable in poor families in Namakkal district. Rising up girl child is considered as a burden due to dowry and gender discrimination. At early age girls are forced into marriage with older men and become young mothers shouldering responsibilities of family. Investments in girls are considered expenses in the society that makes the caretakers/widow mothers in stopping education of girl child. Buds of Christ identifies, educates and empower orphan girl children.
The project will help these deserving children's education, through paying tuition, exam and special fees, school bags, attend life skills education program, procure examination study materials, tutoring support, uniforms and education material needs in continuing their schooling.
