Sponsor a days snack for about 600 girls of Vimukti Girls School, INR 1800

The slums of Jaipur suffer from various socio-economic problems which are intensified by the continued migration of poor families from rural areas. The living conditions, health & sanitation are of abysmally low levels. The slum population also faces a high level of social ills like drug abuse and crime against women. Discrimination against young girls is embedded in the culture and reinforced by poverty. The main barrier is the attitude of poverty-stricken parents who keep them at home watching over siblings or involve them in low skill tasks for minimal income generation. Education broadens horizons, gives skills and transforms young girls into independent young women. Thus Vimukti Sanstha has identified education and vocational training as the means to empower girls from the urban slums of Jaipur.

Vimukti snack helps girls sustain all day
Priyanka Jogi is 17 years old and studies in Grade 8. She lives in the Jawahar Nagar slum with her mother, 2 younger brothers & 2 younger sisters. Her father passed away eight years back. After his death, her mother started selling tissue papers on roads. Sometime back, she had to go undergo Appendicitis operation. Since then she has developed other medical complications and is bedridden. Now there is no source of income in the family. Sometimes Priyanka goes to sell tissue papers but is not able to earn much.
It’s been seven years since Priyanka joined our school. Earlier, her main reason to come here was the daily meal provided here, i.e. milk and snacks because her mother was not able to give them proper food.
Priyanka attends school regularly. The snack provided in the school help her to sustain through the day. There are times when the entire family remains without food for entire day. In her words, I take part in all the activities of the school including sports and crafts. I love to study now. Last year I got good marks in my annual exams and I was given a double promotion. I want to become a teacher who can teach the poor children just as my teachers do. My teachers trained me in making rakhis & diya. Now I make them & sell them so I can earn money to help my family.
