Sambhali Trust provides over 350 underprivileged women and girls in Rajasthan state with educational, vocational, and social skills to help them to become confident and financially independent.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Women and girls continued to be constrained by India's patriarchal society, as well as ongoing caste discrimination. Many have little or no access to education or basic health services. They even do not have the right to choose their husband and manage that relationship. Without education, women are caught in a cycle of poverty and dependence on male family members.
How will this project solve this problem?
In addition to providing classes in Hindi, English and Math, Sambhali Trust teaches income-generating skills such as sewing. Currently over 350 women and girls participate in Sambhali's eleven empowerment initiatives in Jodhpur city and Setrawa village.
Potential Long Term Impact
Parents see their daughters benefiting from education and employment, and no longer force girls to marry at a young age. Additionally the women share their knowledge with their family, and perhaps their husband's family, further extending the benefits of Sambhali Trust.
