"To live the full life one must have the courage to bear the responsibility of the needs of others
– one must want to bear this responsibility."
Aung San Suu Kyi
Lack of education limits prospects, decreases family income, reduces health, puts women and girls at risk of trafficking and exploitation, and limits the economic advancement of entire countries.
We believes that education for girls and women is the single most effective way to improve the lives of individual families as well as to bring economic development to poor communities worldwide.
By improving educational opportunities for girls and women, we want to help women develop skills that allow them to make decisions and influence community change. In turn, these programs have a positive impact on some of the most profound issues of our time: Population growth, HIV, peace and security, and the widening gap between the rich and poor.
Many women do not have the means to change their health, sanitation and hygiene practices and remain unaware of the major health risks and how to minimise them.
Many women are illiterate and this prevents them from understanding and adopting proper hygiene and safety methods in their day to day lives.
Create awareness in local communities in some South Asia countries while experiencing what it’s like to teach and educate in rural communities abroad. Through Health, Sanitation, & Hygiene Education project, we want to help the opportunity to be a part of removing barriers to improved health, by providing basic sanitation and hygiene education.
Empowering women in some of South Asia countries can help address the twin issues of gender and urban poverty.
Given the lack of safe and affordable drinking water and sanitation and healthcare facilities, women find themselves spending more time fetching water and taking care of sick family members than on earning a living. Lack of sanitation facilities also exposes women to harassment since they are forced to relieve themselves in open areas.
With economic and social support, such as microcredit, skills training, and childcare support, women can help provide healthy food, education, healthcare, and safe housing for the family. In turn, this will improve the quality of life for all.
