Challenge

Young women living in remote villages often see no improvement in their current and future conditions and they see early marriage, many children and a life of drudgery and poverty. Often they are enticed by their friends and contacts who have gone to the cities to come with them. With little education and poor life-skills they are often victimized by criminal syndicates. When this happen, the cycle of poverty and powerlessness is repeated.

Solution

We will provide funds for young women who are already trafficked and wishing to go back home as well as we will provide support for young women who intend to go to big cities by explaining to them situations and experiences of women who are already in dire circumstances.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement of the lives of young women who are in dire situations and the improvement of the communities where they live. Providing support to them is imperative.
