Saree Not Saree: India 2013

It's funny how time and distance change you, the roads you take don't always lead you home.

Voice 4 Girls

Saturday was NGO day so members of our group visited NGO’s around the city then reconvened to share what we learned. I went to Voice for Girls, an NGO created by some Dartmouth grads who saw the hole in education of female girls in India while studying here. On top of that, they wanted to empower your girls through education and self understanding to begin to change future generations of young women. They create programs within schools to be led by female Indian teachers to help girls learn English and empower them in other ways. Their goal is to have the entire program be run by an Indian woman in the future, but for now they have a staff of ten who work behind the scenes. They have three intern positions and I am hoping to apply for one while I am here, but will keep you posted.

    A brilliant idea, Emma. I really hope the internship works out–you would be wonderful helping these young ladies!
