Summary

The Veera Project offers young women graduating from secondary school the opportunity to pursue a higher education and enter a variety of professions. Women in India need to be educated to become independent. Our girls come from very poor villages of the Thar desert around Jodhpur. Nursing is one particular job they care to train for to help their people in the villages or to work in a hospital with a good wage.

Challenge

Rural India is still very poor and particularly Rajasthan which is in the Thar desert. The cast system enables the Rajputs (class of warriors) to disgrace the dalits (untouchables) or the people from tribes. Child marriages are still illegally organized at night. They cannot own land and become the slaves of the owners. It is still a patriarchal society although women are slowly getting empowered. Healthwise there is still a great need of help. Corruption is everywhere.

Solution

The Veera project will not solve the Indian problems. It will be a drop in the ocean. We will feel so happy to know we have helped a young lady to be trained to earn her living and often also her family. This young lady will not organize a marriage for her child at 5 years old and she will be capable to teach her children to write and to read and send them to secondary school and tertiary education. She will have learned the basics of healthcare and nutrition and very important family planning

Long-Term Impact

A whole generation can be easily uplifted through education. Educated women are more likely to be respected in their villages and less likely to be raped. If we can help even just 5 girls to go into university or training colleges it means that thanks to their decision to have 2 children only, 10 of their children will do the same and 20 in the next generation. These young women are very bright and they smile and love studying. Population in India has to go down and it will with education.
