Ashta No Kai is dedicated to empowering rural women. The project, based in ten villages in Pune District of Maharashtra, India provides rural women with the education, skills, and resources needed to become economically independent and self-reliant.
I was responsible for educating the young girls about possibilities for their future. Showing them opportunities for different jobs and how to attain them so they can focus on what they need or want to learn, instead of getting married at the age of 12.
