Project Background

Our women empowerment is in Jaipur city. We are associated with a girls orphanage running by a women entrepreneur cum Hindu priest. She is running this project from last some years. In total there are 30 girls from different background. Some of them lost their both parents, some having single parent and some having both the parents but they can’t afford the education, food and living so they left them in the center. The age range is from 03 years to 17 years in this center.

With the help of the individual donations, corporate funding and volunteer’s fund-raising this center is running with basic facilities. We are looking for the female volunteers to work for this center and empower the girls with the education so that they can rise up and can be financially strong once they are out from the center after completing the age of 18 years.

As a volunteer, your duties are as follows:

  • Counseling the elder girls from the age of 12 and above.
  • Interview preparation and resume writing skills.
  • The use of social media and digital marketing.
