She has a choice

Background on this project

The ultimate goals of the Girls Project go beyond land-based livelihood training, and include education on land rights and asset building. They also involve the larger community because girls alone cannot bring some of these changes around marriage, dowry, and inheritance practices. These bigger changes take more time before we can demonstrate results. The benefits of girls like Ratna producing food in kitchen gardens come more quickly, and help to lay the groundwork for households and communities thinking that girls are connected to land.
