Making girls a priority

The Department for International Development (DFID) in UK has just announced its Aid to India strategy. It stresses the importance of empowering girls and women in alleviating poverty in India;

"Our theory of change is that bringing assets, opportunities and basic services directly to women and girls can break the cycle of poverty passed between generations"

For the full report, see: http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/2011/oct/21/uk-unveils-aid-strategy-india/print

With your continued support, this project is in fact providing these precious and so badly needed opportunities to oppressed girls in the slum areas of Vishrantwadi.
