Challenge

This project will provide financial help to 60 girls to study the nursing course organized by St. Mary's School of Nursing. All of them were stopped with 12th standard because of poverty.Studying the course would help them earn sustainable livelihood. With increase of separations and divorces, dowry related atrocities, suicides among young married girls, it is important that girls acquire professional skills to stand on their own legs with employment & income throughout the year.

Solution

Women For Women will facilitate admission of the 60 girls to study the nursing course in St. Mary's School of Nursing. By receiving this diploma the beneficiary girls will be able to find remunerative employment in nearby towns. Many doctors from towns and cities are opening up clinics and hospitals. WFW will arrange for job placements to the girls when they complete the course. Families will be relieved of tension in spending for the education of the girls.

Long-Term Impact

With many doctors from towns and cities opening up clinics and hospitals in rural areas, there are ample job opportunities for the girls near to their homes. The confidence level of the girls will improve with liquid money in hands. With continuous motivation the health seeking behaviour of all family members will improve. The image of the girls will improve in family and society. There will be no need for them to be dependents when they get married. They will set examples for other girls.
