According to The World’s Women 2015 Study, 496 million women over the world are illiterate, which constitutes nearly two-thirds of the illiterate adults of the world, a proportion that has remained unchanged for over 20 years. In India, this proportion is a visible stark reality with most of our house help, vegetable vendors, malls support staff, all possibly being an unfortunate part of this statistics. While most of us are very used to seeing this reality around us without a bother, we at Mumbai Smiles, with the generous support of our donors, partner and collaborators, are trying to make some difference to such statistics and create a better future for Mumbai and thereby, for India.
The Girl Child Project is an Educational project of Mumbai Smiles, which supports the education of girls with scholarships, educational material, school kits and health camps to ensure the basic Right To Education being provided to our beneficiaries, located in the slums of Andheri (E) in Mumbai city.
On the occasion of International Girl Child Day on October 11, we will present to you one such case study, to share one success story. If you would like to be a part of this change, do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
