In the male-dominated slums of Calcutta, girls come second in every way. They are rarely sent to school, and often end up forced into child marriages, child labor or sex trafficking.
Even for families who do want schooling for their girls, a decent education is unaffordable.
By providing education and academic tutoring, Her Future Coalition ensures that girls have the chance of breaking the cycle of poverty and exploitation by getting a quality education.
Our commitment to these girls is long term. Many of the girls who begin our programs as young children have gone on to college, and are now empowered to transform their families and communities from within.
