  85. Dr.Pravin Jadhav says:

    Great initiative and nicely written..Without an education, these girls from Uttarakhand is often marry and have children at a young age, work in unpaid or low paying positions, and rely on their husbands or families for economic support. Without an education, their futures and their families’ futures are limited.

    Education is the key to women’s empowerment. Through it, women have better access and opportunities in the workforce, leading to increased income and less isolation at home or exclusion from financial decisions. With an education, women are able to live their dreams by pursuing their own goals and values.

    UPES is doing great by empowering women by giving concession in fee..It will surely increase girls admission from Uttarakhand
