We are planning to build a school for our sexually abused girl children. These are school drop outs and they don't continue their education because they are asked to look after their younger siblings. In India girl children education is not considered to be very important as they are going into other family after marriage. This is the mindset of the people here. These children who drop out of school are lured by their neighbors for their sexual desire. These children sometimes become pregnant or they get terminated at this young age.
After this they are married off and since they lack education, they dont know their rights and suffer in their life. We want to educate them, empower them with their basic rights and also enlighten them on the opportunities available to them to continue their life. In most of the urban slums, they are let off after 3-4 children and the men mostly move away from their life. It is on such occasions they find life difficult and they some of them are pushed to end their life.
So we want to take such girl children and give them life by empowering them with basic education. We know it is a huge task, but somewhere we need to start this school. By this many young minds can be revitalized to start their life again.
I welcome comments and inputs into this and your support.
