Empowering Adolescent Girls

The project derives its mandate from the 73rd Constitutional Amendment (1992) which gave formal constitutional recognition to rural local self-governance units called Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) and reserved 33.3% per cent of seats for women in the three tiers of PRIs, village, district and block level.

The project works with young women preparing them when young – to face challenges when they become adults in order to take more responsibilities within their community. More than 1000 adolescents have been involved in this programme.
