Barli Institute for the Development of Rural Women, Indore India

What the Barli girls learn
What the Barli girls learn

Barli Institute continues to transform the lives of its students and their communities YOY.  In 2019:

  1. Please take 3 minutes to see this amazing video about the impact your contributions make to the lives of thousands of girls and their families in Indore, India.  https://vimeo.com/376974381
  2. 191 girls trained in areas of literacy, vocational skills, health and hygiene, environmental conservation, organic farming and gender mainstreaming; impacting 1,146 family members and about 9,550 community members
  3. 26 teachers trained
  4. Over 600 visitors including organic farmers, students, NGO representatives, female police officers, college professors and Mona Board members.
  5. Gatherings for parents are held for each group of trainees. In February 2019, around 300 rural & tribal participants from more than 75 villages came to meet their daughters (incl. 180 parents/family members staying on campus). The main objective of this meeting was to give them opportunity to observe the Institute programs, feel its environment so that they will support their daughters after they return home.
  6. Sheetal’s father said, “I am very happy that my daughter has learnt to read and write, stitching and at the same time she is understanding the importance of moral values and service to humanity. We have also learnt so many new things here. We have learnt about the benefits of organic agriculture and for the first time we have seen solar power generation and large solar cookers to cook food”

Lessons learned:

  • Education is the key for driving grassroots change for the women-trainees.
  • The wholehearted involvement of their male members (fathers, brothers) is key towards enhancing outcomes.
  • Increasing health awareness of women and their families towards basic health and hygiene is important for empowerment of rural women
