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.
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!
EDUCATION materials for their school-going children are a necessity that migrant labourers can't afford. Help Shiksha fund notebooks for 600 such eager students at their Mohyal Colony Education Centre.
KEEPING children from ragpicker communities in school prevents child labour, drug addictions and also early marriage. Help provide evening support classes for 25 youngsters at ₹12,000 per child for a year.
OPEN windows at night let in cool, fresh air... plus a swarm of mosquitoes. With summer approaching, fund netting on dormitory windows, so Baale's girls can sleep with them open without worrying about diseases.
SKIPPING school every month due to a lack of access to sanitation and menstrual hygiene products is an acute problem in slums and villages. At ₹540, you can fund reusable eco pads for one girl for a whole year.
