Our Purpose

Empowering Girls From the Slums

Many impoverished slums in the center of developing countries are home to many families that are battling to survive. Girls are among the most vulnerable people living in these communities, as they frequently encounter particular difficulties because of their gender and socioeconomic standing. But it’s important to acknowledge that these girls have a lot of promise and that, given the correct assistance, they can get past any challenges. This essay looks at the different ways we may support girls living in impoverished slums to break out from the cycle of poverty and realize their goals.
