Girls come as 'boon' for urban informal workers' families. They leave the home and kids and even domestic chores to them and go out for work . These girls have to do household chores and child care and completely miss out their childhood and opportunity to learn and grow .The project will target 1000 such girls and mainstream them through education and skilling.The support would be entirely need based and tailor made for each girl from tuition support to enrolling in nearby skilling centre

Challenge

The families of informal workers leave the household burden on the girls and go out to work depriving the girls of their education and opportunities . The problem is more aggravated in urban areas .The project will target 1000 such families across many slums of Patna ,Bihar so that the other families see and learn

Solution

The project will engage with these families and motivate them to send the girl children to schools and to skilling centres in the vicinity . The support needed for equipping the girl child for education or skilling will be provided by the project .The support could be in providing short tuition support so that the children after enrolment do not drop out . Skilling centres would be identified in the vicinity and depending on the choice and timing the girls would be enrolled there too .

Long-Term Impact

The project will have a demonstrative impact on other families .They could see that with little motivation ,tuition ,education and skilling lives change. They would too get motivated .
