Formal education in India sometimes does not provide practical knowledge or prepare you with life skills. These workshops fill in the gaps in their education, and we also answer several questions that they sometimes cannot ask their mothers . In most cases those who participated are first generation learners. We know that these workshops have met the need in satisfying several areas that the participants were unaware of.
This club in India has been running a series of sessions for young women covering a wide range of non-formal education, to educate, empower, and enable participants.
Some of the subjects were: entrepreneurship, Learning Skills (concentration, time management, environment, SQ4R, T pattern Square for dates); talk on HIV & AIDS, flower making craft by our very own club members, nutrition and cooking (participants particularly enjoyed baking doughnuts!), banking, first aid.
Participants are awarded a certificate upon completion. The sessions conducted helped the girls to be confident and face various challenges of life.
