Welcome to Pardada Pardadi Vocational School

Welcome to Pardada Pardadi Vocational School
Pardada Pardadi Girls Vocational School (PPGVS) is based in Anupshahar, a small area of villages in the Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh, India. Four bumpy hours east of New Delhi, this area is one of the country's poorest and most crime-ridden provinces. (view small | med | large | orig)

Our best incentive: 10 rupees a day scholarship

Our best incentive: 10 rupees a day scholarship
For each day a girl attends school, PPES deposits ten rupees into her bank account. Upon graduation, the student can access this money on the day of her marriage (after the age of 18) or her 21st birthday - whichever comes first. Thus, by the time she graduates after class 12, she should have approximately 30,000 rupees (US$600). (view small | med | large | orig)
