More about our partner:
The Sambhali Trust has two guest homes and several empowerment centers to help women and girls in Jodhpur. The boarding homes have girls ages 5-17. These girls come from villages nearby where they do not have access to education. The trust takes care of giving the girls a place to live, medical care, and access to a nearby school. They also provide volunteer tutors to help with homework and teach workshops to the girls. In addition, women and girls who do not live in the boarding homes have access to the empowerment centers which are open all day. At the empowerment centers in the morning volunteers teach women and older girls basic English, Math and writing skills. Most of these women and girls have never been to school a day in their life. They are allowed to bring their babies and it a safe space to learn. In the afternoon the empowerment center takes in younger kids from surrounding school to help with homework, play and more.
