Summary

This project will send 100 young women in India, living under $2 a day, on a 12-month adventurous path to discover their inner leader and their own life-changing career. High school students, Kavya and Nathalie, recently returning from working at WEP Centers, lead this fundraising initiative.

Challenge

For many reasons (social pressures and responsibilities, access, availability and awareness) young women's participation in employment in India has decreased to 23.3% (one of the lowest rates in South Asia). Without jobs, young women marry early and are financially dependent, immobile, forever lacking an understanding of their abilities and opportunities.

Solution

100 young women will attend a 12-month curriculum to enlarge their understanding of their inner leader and life's opportunities and to prepare them for a fulfilling formal-sector career of their own interest and choosing. The curriculum is Women's Education Project's I Am a Leader Academy.

Long-Term Impact

I Am a Leader Academy graduates become financially independent, with 64% entering employment of their own choosing. They marry later, have fewer children, provide leadership in their careers, homes and communities, and make a lasting impact on future generations.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
