We are delighted to report that all our girls who sat their class XII board exams this year have passed.
Zainab, Shaheen and Raj Laxmi have all now graduated from school and are looking forward to developing vocational skills so that they can support themselves, help their destitute families and of course make their own choices in life. With an education and the ability to earn a good income they have set themselves free from society's expectation that they should marry young and repeat the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and drudgery that their mothers and grandmothers before them have endured.
Read this report from Shreya, the programme leader, about Suhana - who joined our programme when she was just 4 years old.
