Summary

Most girls in rural Rajasthan cannot live their childhood. From early ages they have to work in fields, fulfil household chores and bear responsibilities akin to an adult. If they attend school, their parents fear for their safety as they travel long distances by foot. Often as adolescents they are married off, just to see their daughters facing the same sad fate they experience.To break this vicious circle of illiteracy and poverty, Sambhali Trust has set up three boarding homes in Jodhpur.

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.

Solution

We are providing deprieved girls mostly from the rural Thar desert of Rajasthan safe accommodation where they can feel comfortable and can concentrate on their studies. They will receive a good academic education, have the ability to develop their personality to reach their full potential and broaden their outlook.

Long-Term Impact

Their parents bring them to Sambhali for better, healthy and nourished living, a risk free, secure environment and quality education, which their parents are not able to provide in their living circumstances.
