"There is a place where I feel comfortable and safe. That is my school, Yuwa School. I have people here who love me, care about me, and always guide me to do better. I am not good at drawing but they put my drawings on the wall. They celebrate my birthday. They listen to my thoughts and appreciate them. This is the place where I can grow freely."
-Ishita, 4th Standard Student
Yuwa works in rural Jharkhand, where 6 out of 10 girls drop out of school and become child brides. To break this cycle, girls need confidence, resilience, a supportive community, and a quality education.
Your donation to Yuwa will deliver high-quality sports and lifeskills programs to 500 girls, and world class education to 95 in our full-time college preparatory academy for girls from vulnerable backgrounds .
Next up, we're building a permanent school campus with hostel and sport facilities to help hundreds of girls powerfully take charge of their own futures, enabling them to break out of the cycle of poverty--permanently.
