Project Description

Pardada Pardadi Educational Society (PPES) started a development initiative called the Pardada Pardadi Girls Vocational School (PPGVS) with the prime objective of empowering girl children through free education and vocational training. The society is driven by gender bias which encourages violence and discrimination against women in many forms. Some of these are lack of education, early marriage, chronic undernourishment, lack of access to health care and no financial independence. PPES work in Anupsahar in Uttar Pradesh where gender bias is more acute as reflected in the large number of out of school girls in the region.

Through PPGS, PPES provides free education, study material, meals, health checkups, bicycles for those staying far, uniforms and vocational skills training to most girls from families residing in the region. A cash based incentive not only encourages them to attend full classes, but also gives them the opportunity to save for the future. This incentive is extended to students from Class 6 (INR 10 for each day) to Class 12 (INR 20 for each day). Libraries, computer training, participation in SPICMACAY, NCC as cadets, sports, exposure visits, exchange programmes, volunteering at the centre and English speaking classes have helped these girls to become confident and self assured individuals. Students have the choice of going in for higher studies at the centre or learning a skill which can help them join the textile industry there. All students are given placements after passing out.

Axis Bank Foundation supports the education and learning of 370 girls at the centre and helps them become financially independent, socially empowered and responsible individuals.
