Adolescent girls group (Yuvati Samuh)

Giving adolescent girls wings to soar higher through Yuvati Samuh

Nurturing young girls for a brighter future and village development

Our Yuvati Samuh is a transformative program organized by our Mahila Mandals with the aim of mobilizing and enabling young women (13–25 years old) to harness their potential for collective development.

With this program, we provide a safe and supportive space for young girls to come together, share experiences, and acquire vital life skills. Through education, health awareness, vocational training, and mentorship, Yuvati Samuh nurtures the aspirations of adolescent girls and unmarried women and equips them with the tools to thrive in various aspects of their lives.

Opening doors to opportunity, encouraging girls to thrive

The Yuvati Samuh program is designed for adolescent girls aged between 13 and 19 years and older if they are unmarried, especially from rural communities, where opportunities for personal growth and development can be limited. By providing a platform specifically tailored to their needs, we encourage these girls to overcome challenges, build self-esteem, and become change-makers within their communities.

Benefitting from this program are young women who aspire to break free from societal barriers, gain access to education, explore vocational opportunities, and develop leadership skills. Yuvati Samuh welcomes girls from diverse backgrounds, promoting inclusivity and equal opportunities for all.
