Education offers our girls an escape from Poverty


Previously for our poor Dalit girls, escaping poverty through education was just an impossible dream. The cost of keeping their daughters in education is prohibitive for our families and most girls leave school early to work in menial jobs offering very low wages and no future.  Nandri has enabled our girls to continue in education, achieve promising careers and help financially support their poor families.   

Nandri gives our girls the opportunity to continue to college through special Educational Loans. These loans to the mothers enable the families to meet the financial needs of the student until they graduate. The mothers undertake to pay back the loan over a period of time.  Many of our students have completed 3rd level degrees in many areas including medicine, engineering and computer studies.  To date we have supported 753 Dalit girls to complete their courses and achieve amazing success in their chosen careers.  Nandri has given them the chance to escape the cycle of poverty and fulfill their dreams of a brighter future for themselves and their families.  

Agnes was a very intelligent and hard working student.  Her family are very poor, just about surviving on her dads daily wage as a coolie in the sugar cane field.  Agnes was faced with the prospect of having to find work to help support her family.  She was heartbroken to have to abandon her hopes of going to college and making a good career to enable her to help support her family.   Nandri gave the family an Educational Loan and supported her throughout her time in Agricultural College.  She achieved wonderful results in her degree and is now employed in an excellent job working for the Govenment.  

Thank you for helping Nandri to continue offering Educational Loans to our young girls. With your support we continue to change their lives for the better every day.
