Sahas Foundation To Raise Funds For Girls Education And Women’s Health

Sahas Foundation
Your efforts will help girls and women harness the power of education and wellbeing to change their lives.
Girls in Khushipura, a remote village around 20 km away from Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India, drop out of school when they are 12-13 years old because of extreme poverty and poor health mothers, and incidents of eve-teasing, harassment, and violence. Consequently, they have children at a time when they should be studying, dreaming, and aiming for something in their lives. 
For the last 2 years, Sahas Foundation has worked with adolescent girls and women in Khushipura,  Aligarh. As part of International Women’s Day this year, Sahas is launching a fundraising campaign from 21st February to 8th March to support girls’ education in the village, facilitate a reproductive health awareness camp for women, and hold a sports competition for girls.


Fundraising Campaign for Girls Education in Khushipura 

In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, Sahas is starting a fundraising campaign from 21st February until 8th March to support girls education in the village, in addition to hosting a reproductive health camp for women and a sports competition for girls.
The last 2 years, Sahas has been working with adolescent girls and women native village Khushipura in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. India. By holding workshops on puberty, menstruation, reproductive health, tackling child sexual abuse, film screenings  and football matches,  Sahas Foundation are able to identify specific areas we’ll intensify working on : 
1. Girls Education
Girls in village drop out at the age of 12-13 years as they hit puberty, there are several incidences of eve-teasing, sexual abuse on their way to school. Due to which, parents push them into early marriage further, they have children at a very young age. Unfortunately, at the age where girls must be living their dreams ; they are taking care of children. Sahas is deeply committed to changing this pattern and try our very best to ensure that each girl in the village completes 12 years of education.

2. Women’s Health
Women in the village struggle with reproductive health problems related to menstruation, lack of contraception awareness, and no access to health care within 10 kilometres of the village. This women’s day, Sahas is inviting a gynaecologist to visit and see the women as part of the  reproductive health awareness camp on 5th March. 
3. Sports
After dropping out of school, girls are mostly confined to their homes and doing household chores. On International Women’s Day 2021, Sahas organised a football match, and another one in December. The girls demonstrated high levels of enthusiasm, zeal, confidence, and self-esteem while playing, which led us to organise another sports competition for them on 6th March.
Any donation, big or small, can help girls education and making the Village Khushipura a gender equitable village. For more information about this fundraising, visit


Sahas’s vision is to engage in knowledge building of adolescents of India towards gender and sexuality thereby, building their capacity to prevent experiences of Gender Based Violence. Their intention is to engage in intensive community gender intervention in slum communities of Delhi and rural regions of Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.
