Summary

In Indian society girls are often denied chances for personal growth and education, creating a variety of lifelong struggles. The Janani Home offsets this gender discrimination by creating a safe and structured environment for underprivileged girls to pursue their studies and particular interests. We want to remove limitations, and provide opportunities for these girls to reach their highest potential. The Home currently serves 11 girls, but we hope to expand as support increases.

Challenge

Due to India's tradition as a patriarchal society, women and girls do not have the same educational opportunities or independence as the men. Through Prime Trust's established programs with underprivileged women, we witness firsthand how the girls are deprived of occasions to pursue their own interests and studies, often limited to look after the home and younger siblings while the mother financially supports the household as the husband is absent, abusive, and/or alcoholic.

Solution

At Prime Trust we believe that there is no better way to pull a child out of poverty than through education. The Janani Home creates a safe and organized setting where the girls learn to appreciate themselves and their ability, and through this confidence they will seek opportunities in life originally denied them. Additionally, we are removing them from stressful environments, and placing them in a nurturing home where their best interests, health, and education are attended to.

Long-Term Impact

Our long-term goal is to help as many at-risk girls in the local community as possible. Also, once the girls grow into mature adults we hope to help them use their newly acquired attitude and education to become financially independent, support post-secondary educational pursuits, or teach them additional vocational skills. We want to continue to be in their lives in some capacity, operating as steady and positive encouragement until they feel comfortable settling into true independence.
