For young women from disadvantaged backgrounds, education beyond school and to the highest level possible is their best ticket to lead independent, sustainable lives. These five young women will not only have access to better job opportunities once they graduate, they will also be shining role models for all their 37 younger sisters in Baale Mane.
We feel grateful to Baale Mane for having given us this opportunity to help better the lives of young girls. The girls are brilliant and exhibit so much talent and excellence in everything that they do.
Baale Mane’s dedicated Independence Care Coordinator and team will work with Radha, Nandini, Rekha, Vaideshwari and Vidya to ensure they attend all their college tutorials and pass their exams. Once Nandini and Radha graduate in June 2017, Baale will help them find suitable employment, while Rekha, Vidya and Vaideshwari will continue with their degree courses.
ONCE 18, abandoned youth can no longer remain in care homes. Udayan Ghar protegee Suman* has secured a place in Mumbai's National Institute of Fashion Technology but needs help with tuition and hostel fees.
THE best outcome for kids rescued from railway platforms is to get them back home as quickly as possible. Help SATHI fund this return journey - from a temporary shelter to the caring arms of their families.
GIRLS at Pardada Pardadi school sit on hard classroom floors every day for their lessons. Gift these eager students desks with benches to rid them of this uncomfortable distraction and focus on their studies.
SHARING a dorm with pals can be great fun - until you fall ill, spread the infection and miss school. Baale Mane have planned a sick room for their girls but need funds to equip it with beds, medicines, etc.
THE education system leaves youth ill-equipped to deal with situations beyond the textbook - especially those who enjoy little privilege. Help Medha teach critical life skills to 25 urban poor schoolgoers.
Exams are over and our five Baale girls have done brilliantly!
Nandini (B.Com) and Radha (B.A.) have passed their 5th semester examinations with First Class and are working hard for their final semester in college. They are both starting to think about possible career options after they graduate.
Rekha (B.A.), Vaideshwari (B.A. Journalism) and Vidya (B.Com) have also done well in their 1st semester examinations and are enjoying their first year of college. In the summer, Baale Mane will be organising work shadowing and internship opportunities for the three of them.
Meanwhile, the girls had a lovely time back at the home with their sisters over the Holi weekend.
All five girls were at home with us for Diwali - a much-needed time-off as they prepare for their exams later this month.
Here’s a shot of Vidya with some younger girls participating in our Rangoli competition. They love visiting Baale Mane and its tranquil surroundings when they can - it gives them a refreshing break from the city, managing their independent lives and keeping on top of their studies.
Join us in wishing them luck for their exams!
