On a 2010 visit to India, TFI came across the Sirjana Institute. This Institute strive for important contributions to improving some of the long-impoverished communities in Varanasi. Rather than breaking the cycle of poverty, young girls in these areas have very few options. In fact, these girls options are marrying young and having children, thus not allowing room for economic development.
Under those circumstances, Sirjana offers vocational training to women and academic scholarships for their children, Sirjana offers hope for the future in the communities that they serve. Graduates are given assistance to find jobs in their learned trades, which include sewing and beauty salon services.
To donate specifically to the Sirjana Institute, write “Sirjana” in the comments section.
