Challenge

Transportation is a big concern. In the villages of Maira, Thirchak, and Chakki Rangpur, the nearest secondary school is about 20 kilometers from the village. Due to high transportation cost and no access to reliable transport makes it difficult for girls to continue with their education. It also places a financial strain on families who seek to send their girls to school. This project provides transportation, cost of registration and required exams, and will offer self-growth workshops.

Solution

This project provides transportation, cost of registration, cost of required exams and self-growth workshops to all 60 girls attending secondary school from the villages of Maira, Thirchak, and Dharyala Kahoon. This is an ongoing project and we hope to continue our support for these girls through high school.

Long-Term Impact

Uneducated girls have almost no chance to escape the cycle of poverty for them, their families and their communities. We will educate 60 girls allowing them to rise out of poverty, improving their families' health, economic status, and well being.
