Germany’s support for empowering girls continues
Representatives from the German Embassy New Delhi met staff members of NGO “Apne Aap Women Worldwide”. A bookshelf replete with works of literature in Hindi and English was presented to the NGO for female students at a secondary school in Dharampura.
Funded by the German government in 2017, the project aims to provide girls from underprivileged social backgrounds with better education opportunities and help save girls from social evils like prostitution.

Additionally, computer courses and extracurricular activities such as handicraft, theatre workshops as well as yoga sessions provide the female students with not only career prospects, but also enhance self-confidence and awareness.
