Big Challenges

Karunaprabha, leader of the project in Pune tells us about the biggest challenges that she and her team have faced when working to empower the girls -

Question:

What have been the biggest challenges for you in your work?

Answer:

In the age group that we work with, girls rarely go out of the house- they aren't allowed. So it is often quite a task to try and convince parents to let them come to our activities. Another problem, even when they are allowed, is that many of the girls in the slums are addicted to watching tv serials so they often decide not to attend the sessions. This habit can catch on to other girls, as just like most adolescents this age, they are very susceptible to peer pressure.
