by Education, Awareness & Community Health (EACH) Vetted since 2018 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

The educational opportunities for a girl child and career oriented skills; the girls have always been dependent on father, brother before marriage and upon her husband after marriage. Most of their time and efforts are devoted for family welfare in on-forms and off-forms duties but their contribution is not economically valued. This is the overall scenario of average women. Thus without education and career oriented skill their dependency increase, making them unemployed & doing household chores
