Aimed at enabling access to quality vocational/skill education & economic opportunities, Manzil seeks to empower young girls aged 14-21 years to independently make their own choices, thereby preventing early marriage and delaying the age of first pregnancy in select six districts of Rajasthan. The project focuses on mapping girls’ aspirations, linking them with training opportunities, and connecting and improving quality of skill-based training. The project also provides right information to girls. It helps them access decent work opportunities to address regressive social norms at the community level that hinder women’s participation in the workforce.
We as a project partner have collaborated with Rajasthan Skills and Livelihoods Development Corporation (RSLDC) to ensure that girls from rural and marginalised backgrounds who have dropped out of schools are linked to skill training centres and are provided with economic opportunities.
- 44,000+ girls in Rajasthan enrolled in vocational courses in schools
- 12,000+ girls registered in skill development centres
- 5,000+ girls placed in jobs
