When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 for a man. (Yale News Daily 2003)
Currently only 29 percent of women over the age of 15 are part of India’s formal economy. For the at-risk young women we serve, working outside the home not only increases their family’s economic well-being, it also increases their standing within their home and larger community. Your financial support will go towards Shadhika’s job readiness training efforts for the girls we support so that they can be successful in the workforce.
