    A group of volunteers are working to run the project and they have strong feelings to develop the project. They go to local slums to counseling with women and girls. The age of the participants who are between 13 to 18 and some are over 20. These girls stay at home and not have even chance to go school to continue their education or even they can go for work to enhance their knowledge. An experienced trainer voluntarily works there. About 8-10 girls and women are receiving training facilities under the project.

    • Eradicate gender inequalities and women empowerment by focusing Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5).
    • Develop social business to expand training facility and run the project independently.

    Why the project is important?

When they are under parents' supervision or even after marriage they do not get rest from such violence. SDG5 target is crucially important to achieve to reduce such violence by empowering women and girls. Girls aged between 12 and 18 who are going to school because of household chores and financial problem can enhance their skill, education within the project. Their work will be marketed to local business. Such facilities will help them to get payment for their effort and contribute to their family income. Guardians will not take decision to give early marriage or girls can even show excuse against it.
