Vacha’s resource centre supports the adolescent girls in Mumbai’s bastis (slum communities) with supplementary education. Through experiential and collaborative learning, the girls develop 21st-century skills and a sense of civic spirit.

“I never used to have any voice of my own, I was always a silent and timid person. After joining Vacha youth group, I have gained courage to speak in front of thousands and have enthused many more girls to follow my path.”
