Jyoti's story shows how this project is slowly but surely creating a new generation of empowered young women -
Jyoti Tusamad, Aged 15 years (participant of Life Skills class)
One day Dr. Mune madam came to my house and gave information to my mother about the life skills class and asked her to send me to the class.
She teaches us about confidence - which factors affect our confidence. Through this class we have visited an orphanage. We felt very sad when we saw the condition of the children and infants there.
Through the bank visit we got information and the confidence to open a savings account in it. I can save money and also can withdraw money from my bank account.
We very much enjoyed the adventure camp at Mumbai (Bombay- at Karjat), especially the valley crossing which was very adventurous. We stayed there for two days.
We also learned about the menstruation cycle, and hygiene and how to take care of our body. I also participated in an environment camp arranged in our school and got to know many important things about the environment.
The life skill class has developed confidence in me, so much so that I decided to become a air hostess.
In the future I will oppose any kind of calamity or disaster in my life. I am courageous now.
