“When you first start-off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex and most people stop there but if you keep going, live with the problem and peel more onions off, you can very often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions” ~ Steve Jobs
That is exactly what our learning’s have been. To begin with we were overwhelmed with the magnitude of the problem. We could not understand how to deal with some many issues ( poverty, gender in-equality, social challenges, child trafficking, child marriages, exploitation after marriage, etc) that surround the under-privileged girls and woman of rural India.
We had numerous conversations with girls in this part of the world. We spoke to their parents / guardians. We tried to understand what is it that we can do which will help them overcome their challenges and provide them an equal opportunity at life.
Our ‘Support-A-Girl’, ‘Skills Development’ and ‘Social Enterprise’ are designed to ensure that we provide the required support to alleviate issues such as poverty to these under-privileged. We also ensure that they do not become over dependent on the support system. Our Goal is to ensure that we provide them the platform which will enable to them to lead an independent and self-empowered life, away from social evils such as poverty, child trafficking and exploitation.
