Enabling Village Women

Students: Anil kumar, Ravinder Kumar, Jayprakash Jangid, Md. Afsar Reza, Vikas Kumar Meena ;
Mentor: Dr. Tulika Srivatsava

At present the practice in many Himachal villages is for girls to leave the school system early, often at eighth standard, but many before graduation. The lack of educational certificates severely limits their options, employability and mobility, which is especially difficult for those whose marriages break down or whose husbands die young. Most of these women are fully occupied during the growing season, but there is a lot of free time on winter evenings, given the short day in Himachal during that season. It is difficult for them to attend evening school.
